Former Federal Minister for Small Business and Tourism, Fran Bailey, has been appointed chair of Yarra Ranges Business & Tourism (YRBT).

“Fran’s experience and knowledge will be invaluable in steering YRBT to becoming an essential part of businesses in the Yarra Ranges – not just tourism businesses,” said president of the YRBT, Ross Stevens.

Fran Bailey was first elected to the House of Representatives in 1990 as the Member for local seat McEwen. On her appointment she said she was “delighted to now have the time to be able to contribute to the continuing success of our iconic Yarra Valley.”
