Thank you to everyone who has made me so welcome as I’ve settled into the role as Parking Australia’s new CEO.
It’s been a busy, interesting, and productive few weeks, and I’ve particularly appreciated meeting, listening to and learning from members (whose support we greatly value) and key stakeholders.
I’m very much looking to meeting colleagues in Brisbane next week at our networking event. The panel’s thoughts on ‘finding a balance’ is an apt analogy for an industry which is focused on people, their needs, and the many associated challenges and opportunities that come with this.
We’re hopping back into your inbox this month with our news over the last little while – and there is a LOT of news to catch up on!
Welcome to our new CEO
First and foremost, we are super excited to announce the appointment of our new CEO, Jeremy Irvine.

Jeremy served as a political adviser in federal Parliament in the late 1990s/ early 2000s before transitioning to association executive roles. He has led associations for over 15 years including in the education/training, social services, and construction sectors. Jeremy’s qualifications include a Bachelor of Arts and a Master of Arts (Organisational Communication). He was also one of the first association executives in Australia to complete the internationally recognised Certified Association Executive course and exam.

Our recent Cybersecurity Forum in Melbourne on 15 February was an extremely popular, informative and fun networking event (yes, they did have to ask us to leave more than once!). Attendees gained valuable knowledge and practical guidance around cyber threats to their businesses in the parking industry. If you couldn’t make the event, please log into our Members Resources Section to view the recorded presentations. Special thanks to our sponsors, TNS and First Parking.
