to take up the role of CEO of the Tourism & Transport Forum (TTF).

Osmond has been CEO of ANRA since 2006. A replacement has not yet been named by ANRA, with the industry body declining to answer questions about the appointment to Inside Retail PREMIUM.

An ANRA spokesperson told Inside Retail PREMIUM a press statement is to be issued, although it had not been received at the time of print.

Her appointment was announced by TTF chairman, Bruce Baird, who said Osmond brings a wealth of relevant skills and experience from her diverse roles in politics, business, and the tourism, events, sports and arts sectors.

“We are extremely pleased to announce Osmond’s appointment as TTF’s new chief executive officer following an extensive recruitment process,” Baird said.

“With more than 20 years of relevant industry, advocacy and major events experience, as chief executive officer of the Australian National Retailers Association and the NSW State Chamber of Commerce, a current board member of the Australian Sports Commission and the NSW TAFE Commission Board, and previous board member of Tourism NSW, NSW Major Events and Bell Shakespeare, Ms Osmond is well equipped to spearhead TTF’s policy and advocacy agenda.

“She is a well established commentator with a strong track record of policy and campaign development. I am confident Ms Osmond will capably drive TTF’s advocacy of the economic importance of the tourism and transport sectors in Australia.

In a TFF media release, Osmond said she was looking forward to joining TTF.

“TTF is Australia’s pre-eminent tourism and transport advocacy and industry group, and I am very excited about the opportunity to lead the organisation,” she said.

“It covers a great breadth and depth of policy areas and is also the nation’s only multi-modal transport industry group.

She takes up the role on October 1.
