The AJBCC Welcomes Our New CEO

The AJBCC Welcomes Our New CEO

I am delighted to announce that your Committee has chosen a successor to David Jacobs as the new CEO of the AJBCC.

From a strong shortlist, we have asked Richard Andrews to take on the task and he has readily agreed.

Richard’s last overseas DFAT posting was as the Australian Ambassador to Ireland. Prior to that he had a number of postings to the Australian Embassy in Japan. Richard is a fluent Japanese speaker with a deep and lasting affection for that country and the bi-lateral relationship.

Richard will begin with us on 15 March 2021. I am sure he will be a worthy successor to David Jacobs and continue on in that vein.

Sir Rod Eddington AO

Richard Andrews
