Gary Daly will join Exhibitions and Trade Fairs (ETF) in the role of Managing Director, taking over from Jodie Richmond effective December 2012.
Mr Daly joins the ETF team with an extensive background in business, commencing in media and advertising. He possesses a thorough understanding of the meetings and events industry that has been further strengthened by his most recent role as General Manager of Sales for Luna Park, Sydney. During his tenure at Luna Park he assisted in positioning the business, transforming it into a complete entertainment precinct.
His experience coupled with his strong network of industry relationships will help lead the ETF business into the next phase of operation focused on continuous improvement.
“I am thrilled to be joining ETF at such an exciting time. I look forward to working with such a dynamic team as we launch into another year of successful events,” Mr Daly said.
Jodie Richmond has been at the helm for the past two years. During her time as Managing Director Ms Richmond increased the breadth of the portfolio of shows owned and managed by ETF, introducing brand new events whilst strengthening those shows already in operation.
Mr Daly will work alongside Ms Richmond in the lead up to Christmas.
