A new era for Brand Tasmania. Legislation introduced into State Parliament yesterday will transform the Brand Tasmania Council into a statutory authority. This gives it greater surety and resources – including funding and staffing – to further build on more than 20 years of vital work. Brand Tasmania Executive Director, Robert Heazlewood, explained: “By evolving into a statutory authority, it ensures that Brand Tasmania continues to go from strength to strength. Our Brand is one of our greatest assets, and this timely change means the benefits that derive from such a strong, and unique brand, will be further protected and enhanced as we go forward.” The transition to a statutory authority has been the result of extensive collaboration between the Brand Tasmania Council and the Department of Premier and Cabinet. As Mr Heazlewood elaborated: “We are delivering on the Premier’s promise to evolve Brand Tasmania into a sustainable position, which would allow greater cooperation between the private and public sector.” Brand Tasmania was set up more than 20 years ago as a place-of-origin marketing initiative by a group of local exporters. Since that time, it has played a leading role in growing Tasmania’s brand into one that is the envy of the world. Or, as Premier Will Hodgman said when he announced the transition last year: “Through a new statutory authority we will turn up the spotlight that’s already shining on our people, places and produce, which are the best in the world. This will give us a louder and clearer sales pitch that all Tasmanians can use.”
