Graham Wright to chair AMI after Lee Tonitto steps down

Graham_Portrait_2Graham Wright is to chair the Australian Marketing Institute (AMI) and will succeed Lee Tonitto who is stepping down after three years in the role.

Wright has been a director on the board of the AMI since 2008, serving as deputy chair during part of that time, and the appointment comes as the AMI searches for a new CEO after Mark Crowe announced last month he would be stepping down in March.

“I am honoured to be elected Chair and look forward to an exciting period ahead as we embark on an ambitious strategy to increase membership, continue our work in building the profile of the marketing profession and introduce a new operating model,” said Graham Wright.

“The board and management have identified five key strategic pillars for specific attention: member engagement; professional advancement; a strong and persuasive voice for the profession; influential thought leadership and a new governance structure”, he said.

He also acknowledged Tonitto’s contribution over her period as chair of the body which represents marketers. “The board has paid tribute to Lee by conferring Life Membership for the outstanding contribution she has made to the marketing profession,” said Wright.
