Durst Oceania managing director, Matt Ashman, has been appointed to the board of FESPA Australia and says he is looking forward to continuing to grow and develop the association’s work in Australia and New Zealand.
FESPA Australia president, Nigel Davies, whose role was unchallenged at the recently held AGM, says: “We have had a long-standing relationship with Durst and in particular Matt. Not only does he bring a wealth of experience and knowledge, but his support towards FESPA and our vision is second to none.”
Ashman told Sprinter he was thrilled with his appointment to the board of an organisation that is supported globally by Durst.
“FESPA is a fantastic organisation that certainly is something that Durst supports globally and I am very keen to see it continue to grow and develop in the Australia and New Zealand region,” Ashman told Sprinter.
“This is a great honour to be nominated as a Board member of FESPA Australia. I am delighted to be part of a well respected, internationally recognised Association. I’m particularly looking forward to being involved in some of the forthcoming initiatives that FESPA has tabled for 2021.”
Davies also thanked the other FESPA Australia board members for their tireless work over the past two terms.
“I would like to thank the other Board members for their tireless work over the past two terms, which has been particularly challenging during COVID. The strength of our board lies in supporting our membership, and I am excited at what we will achieve over the next two years,” Davies said.
