Darren Woolley, the founder of TrinityP3, has been elected the new chair of the Australian Marketing Institute. He is the first person to be elected into the role.

Woolley, who only joined the board in September last year, will succeed Graham Wright. Wright will continue as a board member.

He will work closely with Lee Tonitto who was herself appointed the CEO of the organisation last year.

“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 and continue our work in building the profile of the marketing profession,” said Woolley on the announcement of his appointment by the Institute’s board of directors.

“I look forward to working with fellow board members and Lee Tonitto, CEO.  There are huge challenges ahead to be overcome, but with the talent of the Board and a capable management team there is a new capacity to achieve our new goals,” Woolley said.

Wright said: “The election of Darren as new chair is the final piece in the Governance changes which brought in member elected Board members.  The intention was to inject new ideas and fresh perspectives to the AMI driven by member elected directors.  Darren is the first member-elected Director to be elected Chair by the Board and leads a well-balanced team keen to deliver on this promise of an exciting future.  I look forward to continuing to contribute to the board, providing continuity and support.”

The Australian Marketing Institute has approximately 7,000 members and is the representative professional body for marketers in Australia.
