He is an experienced executive and non-executive director with an extensive background in media and advertising, spanning over 30 years. Incoming Chair, Brian Wexham said: “This is an exciting time for Worldskills and the vocational education sector generally .

Worldskills Australia has made great headway over the past few years and I welcome the opportunity to work with my fellow directors and the Chief Executive to ensure we continue to build the reputation and role of WorldSkills. It has a significant role to play in encouraging young Australians to reach their full potential and to create sustainable and inspired relationships with industry.”
