Dear Members


I am very pleased to announce that the Board has voted for Brian O’Reilly to become AusCham’s next National President. Brian, who is the Managing Director of SEA Management Consulting Company and a former President of AusCham, will formally assume the position when I hand over at our next Board meeting on 9 September.


Brian and our new Vice President, Giles Cooper are very much looking forward to working with each other – as well as the Board and, of course, you, our members.


Separately, we have a vacancy on the Board (for any Hanoi-registered voting member).   Please be reminded that the deadline is 5pm today, Tuesday 26 August.  To nominate, please email our Executive Director, Phil Johns at ).  We have already received four excellent nominations.


Moving forward, I have no doubt that, with your support, AusCham’s position and standing in the business community will continue to grow.


Personally, I would like to take this opportunity to thank the members for the support you have given me during my time at AusCham, and I would also like to thank Phil and the Auscham Secretariat for all the great work they do to help make Auscham more effective.


I hope to see as many of you as possible at AusCham’s Real Estate Symposiums and Fireside Chats in Hanoi and HCMC during September.  


Yours sincerely
