EEAA Chief Executive Joyce DiMascio to step down

EEAA Chief Executive Joyce DiMascio to step down
November 12, 2019

Joyce DiMascio, Chief Executive at the Exhibition and Event Association of Australasia (EEAA), will step down from her role on 27th December 2019 to take up another position in the events and hospitality industry.

EEAA President, Spiro Anemogiannis noted that since joining the Association in 2011, DiMascio had built the EEAA into a stronger, more recognised and valued Association widely respected both in Australia and internationally.

Anemogiannis advised that “Joyce has been a stand-out leader focussed entirely on delivering the best possible outcomes no matter what the brief. She has taken our Association forward in every way and we are immensely grateful to her for her service to our Members and the wider industry.

“She has been an effective and creative leader who has delivered outstanding results in all areas. She is a passionate advocate for our industry including those who work in it especially the next generation leaders.”

Commenting on her decision, DiMascio said that working at the EEAA had been a career highlight and she was pleased to be leaving the organisation stronger and more respected.

“With my team, I have done my 'personal best' and it’s time to pass the baton to the next CEO to continue to build on the current momentum.

“I have had the best job in the world. There have been many highlights, but I am most proud of introducing the EEAA Young Stars Program, kicking off the sustainability initiative, attracting global recognition for our advocacy work, securing support for the temporary exhibition centre at Glebe Island and finally, building a community of staff and Members focussed on collaboration in the best interests of our industry.

“I thank my current and past staff, the Board and of course our Members and Partners who have helped me to flourish and do my personal best.”

Recruitment for the new Chief Executive will commence immediately.
