Chief Executive Officer
Simon brings to the Trust an essential mix of heritage experience, arts management and commercial understanding.
With such a broad range of sites, Simon’s early Farm Management studies at Muresk Agricultural College and his work at the WA Department of Agriculture bring an informed and sensitive understanding to his role at the Trust.
Further Arts Management study at the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts led to a role as Director of the Asia Pacific Multimedia Festival and then as Director of McClelland Gallery and Sculpture Park.
With extensive experience in farming, the arts and finally Tourism, through his roles as Director of the Blue Mountains Cultural Centre in Katoomba, CEO of the Margaret River Tourism Authority and CEO of Visit Sunshine Coast, Simon can ensure that the Trust continues as a strong, powerful, relevant organisation.
