MEDIA RELEASE

Reappointment of Australian National Maritime Museum Council Chair

29 August 2016

The Australian Government has reappointed Mr Peter Dexter AM as Chair of the Council of the Australian National Maritime Museum for three years.

Mr Dexter brings to the role considerable experience from the maritime industry, as well as governance and executive management expertise from the public and private sectors.

Over the past six years, Mr Dexter has overseen the rejuvenation of the museum, including senior staff appointments. Through his leadership, the museum has developed and commenced the delivery of a new site masterplan with the successful construction of the Action Stations exhibition. Mr Dexter has also revitalised the ANMM Foundation.

These initiatives have enhanced the museum’s financial performance, increased visitor numbers and enabled the museum to take up new opportunities.
