At BET’s December Board meeting, Darren Alexander stepped down from his position as an appointed Director.  We would like to thank Darren for his valued contribution to the organisation over the last five years.

Following a detailed review to ensure that the mix of experience and skills of BET directors is best placed to deal with the challenges and opportunities over the coming period, the Board has reappointed Ralph Freckelton to fill this vacant position.

Ralph is the General Manager of Hotel Grand Chancellor Hobart, one of the state’s largest business event venues.

Ralph has over 30 years’ experience in the hospitality and business events sector, managing venues and hotels across Australia and in the UK.

As GM of Tasmania’s largest conference venue, he is well placed to actively contribute to the Business Events Tasmania board.  He brings to the Board extensive experience in event management, sales and marketing, IT, finance, governance and business management.
