Sydney, 15 July 2022: The Night Time Industries Association has appointed public affairs professional Mick Gibb as Chief Executive Officer, effective 5 July 2022.
NTIA Chair Justine Baker said a thorough search was undertaken to appoint a new CEO who could drive advocacy and member engagement for the NTIA. The NTIA Board is confident that Mick will provide the kind of advocacy leadership needed to support our members and the night time economy.
This is an incredibly important time for the sector as we rebuild. We still have much to do to firstly get our industries back to pre-pandemic strength and then to create a sustainable, diverse and exciting night-time ecosystem. I’m looking forward to working with Mick and our members to champion the night.”
Mick Gibb says the night time industries have shown incredible ingenuity, resilience and determination to persevere through lockouts, lockdowns and over regulation.
“There’s an enormous opportunity for Australia to unlock the huge economic benefits that come from a strong, sustainable and resilient night time economy.
“I’m looking forward to tapping into the youth voice through the NTIA’s newly created Youth Advisory Group of under 30 year olds. This group has bold ideas of what the night time experience should look like and will serve as a powerful voice for the NTIA and our members.
“The NTIA is uniquely positioned to champion the entire night time industries ecosystem. Key to realising the power and potential of the night time economy is having a collective voice for the many and varied players that make the night time economy what it is.
“There has been a lot of support and commitment from across the aisles of government to realise the potential of the night time economy. I look forward to building on this foundation for our members and for a thriving night time sector.”
Mick Gibb has extensive public affairs experience working across NSW politics and the heavily regulated financial services and technology sectors. Most recently, Mick Gibb led external relations for publicly listed Australian HRtech firm ELMO Software.
