AIM appoints inaugural executive general manager for Qld & NT

Monday 10 February 2014

The Australian Institute of Management has appointed senior staff member Barry Hankinson FAIM to the role of Executive General Manager, Queensland and Northern Territory.

Mr Hankinson’s appointment follows the resignation of AIM QNAN CEO Vivienne Anthon FAIM who resigned in January.

A Certified Practising Accountant, Mr Hankinson has been with AIM for the past 10 years in a variety of roles including his most recent position as Head of Strategy & Major Projects and prior to that General Manager, Central Queensland.

The role of General Manager, Central Queensland required Mr Hankinson to relocate from Brisbane to Mackay to oversee AIM’s contract with BMA and the promotion will see him move back to Brisbane.

“I moved to Mackay at the beginning of 2011 to establish a network of training centres for BMA and to support AIM’s commitment to managers and management in Central Queensland,” Mr Hankinson said. “I was privileged to work with a great team and see first-hand their commitment and devotion to regional communities from Dysart, Emerald and Moranbah in the west to Mackay and Rockhampton on the coast.

“While my new role is bringing me back to Brisbane, AIM remains committed to supporting and providing development opportunities to managers and leaders throughout regional Queensland.”

AIM Chief Executive Officer Daniel Musson FAIM welcomed Mr Hankinson’s appointment and said his skill set, diverse background and intimate understanding of AIM’s operations made him an ideal person for the role.

“Barry’s long history with AIM Qld & NT and more recently QNAN both as Chief Financial Officer and in operational roles ensures we can maintain the continuity of our successful Queensland operations and utilise Barry’s corporate knowledge to assist us in our growth ambitions,” Mr Musson said.

“I am certain Barry has the skills drive and business acumen to drive growth and capitalise on business opportunities as they arise.”
