“The appointment of Mr Bingeman from an exceptionally strong field of applicants positions our visitor economy well for an important period of innovation and growth.”

Visit Victoria Chair Sir Rod Eddington added “as one of the marketing industry’s leading talents, Mr Bingeman in the role of inaugural CEO, has the international marketing and retail expertise to lead the new organisation and grow the state’s visitor economy.”

Looking forward to his new role, Bingeman concluded “the creation of Visit Victoria signals a new era for this critical industry in Victoria.

“As a passionate Victorian I am excited to start this role and look forward to working with industry and government to advance Victoria’s visitor economy.”
