Steven Potts leaves BIAV
Search starts for new boating association CEO in Victoria.
The CEO of the Boating Industry Association of Victoria (BIAV), Steven Potts (pictured), has left the organisation to take up a new role with VicSport. He joined BIAV in April 2014.
In a statement released last week, Potts said it was with mixed emotions that he announced his resignation from BIAV.
“We have launched many new initiatives over the last 2.5 years with a strong focus on communication and engagement with the members and the public. Our Life’s Better with a Boat promotion now communicates with over 20,000 people each week and is continuing to grow. There will be more exciting announcements in the coming months and I hope you will continue to support the promotion.
“The BIAV have also worked hard to ensure there is a much greater understanding and awareness of our industry with Government and key decision makers. This is essential for a successful future for all businesses, clubs and boaters.”
The search for a replacement CEO is currently underway with a successor expected to be announced in the new year.
