The Australian Information Industry Association (AIIA) has found a new CEO to fill the shoes of outgoing chief Ian Birks.

Suzanne Campbell has been selected by the AIIA to helm the industry group today after the three-year tenure of previous CEO Ian Birks. Campbell has a long list of industry experience to her credit having held positions as the head of professional services for Telstra, state general manager for services business Kaz and managing director of MCI WorldCom.

Campbell said her first priority is to meet with members to solidify herself into the role and source an agenda of issues to tackle.

"I am particularly pleased to be taking on this role at such an interesting point in the development of the national industry.

"AIIA's membership base now represents one of the most dynamic and influential elements in the national economy and I am very much looking forward to the opportunity to work with them directly," she said in a statement today.
