ARBS CEO Appointed

Amanda Searle

ARBS has named Amanda Searle as its new CEO. With more than 25 years of experience in marketing, communications, and events, Searle is poised to lead ARBS into its next phase.

“Taking the lead at ARBS is both an honour and responsibility,” Searle says. “I’m looking forward to contributing to ARBS’ growth, highlighting industry innovations both locally and globally.” ARBS chair Professor Tony Arnel says Searle, whose career includes a substantial tenure at AMCA Australia, brings considerable experience to the ARBS role.

“Amanda brings a wealth of expertise that aligns seamlessly with our vision,” Arnel says. “Her leadership qualities and forward-thinking approach promise an exciting and progressive future for ARBS.”

ARBS exhibition organiser Sue Falcke is stepping down after 23 years in the role. Falcke’s accomplishments include significantly increasing attendee figures and launching flagship initiatives such as the ARBS Industry Awards and ARBS Seminar Program. Falcke’s association with ARBS began in 2000, two years after its inaugural show in 1998.
