Jim Delahunty, Managing Director of ExpoNet is set to move from his current position and take on the role of the Chairman of the Board in late 2016. Shaun Rae, currently ExpoNet’s Director of Sales and Marketing will step up into the position of Managing Director following a transition period over the coming twelve months.
With over 30 years’ experience in the exhibition and event industry, Jim is widely recognised as an industry leader. Since joining ExpoNet in 1984, Jim has ensured ExpoNet’s consistent growth and sound financial management.
Jim has overseen a trail of acquisitions and has served on multiple industry boards including
that of Exhibition and Event Association of Australasia, Meetings and Events Australia, and Sydney Convention and Visitors Bureau.
He is now looking forward to devoting more time to strategic projects and is pleased to be able to open opportunities for younger staff to rise up in the organisation. Shaun has been a major contributor to the success of the company over the previous 18 years and the move is a natural progression in his career.
Delahunty says of this time of change, “These are very exciting times at ExpoNet. We are in the midst of a transition, a changing of the guard. As well as continuing my involvement in the industry I will be working with Shaun and his management team in delivering the strategic plans for the future. We have a stable and positive team at ExpoNet who will continue to work passionately to innovate and drive our company forward.”
