ICC HEAD RESIGNS (article first published : 2001-11-17)

CEO of The International Convention Centre Durban (ICC) Peter Brokenshire has announced his resignation in order to take on a new challenge as CEO of the Perth International Convention and Exhibition Centre.

Since 1989, Peter Brokenshire has specialised in the opening of purpose-built international convention centres around the world, including Adelaide, Melbourne, Canberra and the re-engineering of the centre in Kuala Lumpur. He joined ICC shortly before the Centre opened in August 1997 and has been instrumental in creating one of the most powerful catalysts for economic growth in the city.

It was a tough decision, he admits. I have spent many happy years in Durban and Ive regarded my role with the ICC as a privilege. We have notched several successes and I take very special memories back with me to Australia, my home country; especially the most moving opening ceremony performed by President Nelson Mandela.

I foresee a promising future for ICC in spite of the entrance of a more competitive phase. The ICCs point of difference is a firmly established excellent track record and a dedicated team. This will hold them in good stead for the road ahead.

Peter Brokenshire leaves ICC at the end of January 2002, to take office immediately at the Perth International Convention and Exhibition Centre which will open in the first quarter of 2004.
