Paul Beeson has stepped down as CEO of Perth Convention Bureau (PCB) after eight years of service in the role and 11 years with the Bureau.

PCB’s chairman, Kevin Skipworth, said that Beeson’s departure will be a “great loss” to the Bureau. “He has applied his excellent leadership and strategic management skills in overviewing the operation of the Bureau and is leaving the organisation in excellent shape,” he said.

“In the financial year just ended 2017-2018, the Bureau secured convention and incentive travel business worth more than $141mil (US$100mil) in direct delegate expenditure. This is an excellent return on the state government’s annual investment for that year of just over $5.1mil (US$3.7mil).”

In a statement, Beeson acknowledged the change that Perth is undergoing with many industry organisations going through renewals. “Renewal is critical in any organisation, particularly those that are marketing focused. It is timely that tourism leadership in Western Australia is undergoing renewal,” he said.
