Three other members - Andrew Grant, Natalie O’Brien and Professor Robert Wallis - have been re-appointed to the Parks Victoria board for a third term while Chairperson Andrew Fairley and board member Ross Passalaqua continue their current tenure until 2017.

The announcement follows the arrival of Parks Victoria’s new Chief Executive Bradley Fauteux, who joined the agency on 16th November.

Commenting on the new appointments, Victorian Minister for Environment, Climate Change and Water Lisa Neville, who has responsibility for Parks Victoria, explained "the new board members bring first-class knowledge and expertise in a variety of fields, including business, health and human services, education, tourism, and natural resource management.”
