The President and Board of the Australian Chamber of Commerce & Industry are pleased to announce Andrew McKellar as ACCI’s new Chief Executive Officer, effective Monday, 9 August 2021.
“Andrew comes to ACCI with a strong background in industry associations both in Australia and globally. He is currently CEO of the Australian Trucking Association and, prior to this, he was Secretary General for Automobile Mobility and Tourism at the Federation International de l’Automobile in Paris,” ACCI President Ray Sputore said.
“Before his departure overseas, Andrew was the CEO of the Australian Automobile Association and spent ten years with the Federal Chamber of Automotive Industries, first as Director of Government Policy, and then as CEO.
“Andrew also brings to ACCI experience from a range of policy and government appointments including as a parliamentary advisor and also from the Commonwealth public service in Treasury, PM&C and the ABARE.
“With all state and territory chambers and more than 80 national industry associations as members, ACCI is the largest representative business group in Australia. Andrew’s extensive range of skills and experiences will bring tremendous value to our organisation and ensure business is represented by a strong advocate.
“The ACCI Board is very enthusiastic about this new appointment and looks forward to Andrew’s strong leadership taking our organisation forward.
“We also acknowledge the committed contribution made to ACCI by Jenny Lambert as its acting CEO since January, a role she will continue to perform until Andrew starts in August.”
