Tourism bureau fills CEO spot with management trio

Steve Harrison, MRBTA Joint CEO & Group Manager of Operations

The Margaret River Busselton Tourism Association has announced its new leadership with three people sharing the chief executive officer position.
The associations chair Trent Bartlett made the announcement last week that Cinde Fisher, Steve Harrison and Sharna Kearney have been made joint chief executives.
The trio are well known in the association for their corporate, operating and marketing roles over the last three years.
Mr Bartlett said the trio had excelled in their positions and worked closely with the associations board and chief executive.
“The board is confident that you will share our view that they are well-positioned to step into the leadership role,” he said to members.
Mr Bartlett said the board had carefully considered the long-term leadership of the organisation, taking into account the unique nature of MRBTA and the mix of skills required by the chief executive officer to fulfil the organisations strategic objectives, before deciding on the approach.
“Cinde, Steve and Sharna have complementary skills and assets and have demonstrated an incredible commitment to MRBTA, a wonderful willingness to work together, recognising each others expertise in certain areas, and supporting one another on the basis of that expertise,” he said.
Mr Bartlett said the said the trio would retain their current group manager roles and increased support would be provided across MRBTAs teams to support the group managers so they could adequately take on shared responsibility for chief executive officer functions.
