Industry Capability Network (ICN) Victoria is delighted to announce Ms Dianne Smith as its new CEO.

On behalf of the Board, Chairman, Tim Piper has today confirmed the appointment. He acknowledged the significant contribution by outgoing Executive Director, Grant Anderson, and thanked him for his stewardship of ICN over the past two years.

“As Victoria emerges from the substantial impacts of COVID-19, the role of ICN and growing local jobs and content could not be of greater importance,” says Mr Piper.

“Grant has been a knowledgeable and excellent leader for ICN, and Dianne will build on this, bringing a fresh perspective for our future challenges.”

Dianne has exceptional industry and government connections to ICN having been Chief Executive, Melbourne Chamber of Commerce (part of the Victorian Chamber of Commerce and Industry) for the past four years and a member of the Minister’s Advanced Manufacturing Council. Prior to that, she led the state’s peak body for tourism and events, Victoria Tourism Industry Council.

“With the current situation, and in line with our Local Jobs First policy, it is certainly the time to continue our State’s investment in Victoria’s future capability. I’m looking forward to working with the Board and team, and playing an instrumental role in Victoria’s recovery from the pandemic,” says
Ms Smith.

Dianne will commence in early November with Grant retiring from the role 29 October 2020.
