Ticky Fullerton has announced that she will be wrapping up as the Editor at Large of The Australian Business Review as she begins her a new role as the Chief Exectutive Officer at the Australian British Chamber of Commerce.

Current Chief Executive, David McCredie AM OBE, will be finishing his tenure with the organisation on March 1, when Fullerton takes over.

Fullerton currently serves as the New South Wales director for the chamber, and has been a board member for the past seven years. 

On LinkedIn, Fullerton wrote that “I’m so looking forward to working with the stellar team at the Chamber and building on the tremendous work that CEO David McCredie AM OBE has done to grow the Chamber over 13 years from minnow to the powerful advocate it is today in the Australia UK relationship.”

“Thank you to the Chamber board, chaired by Andrew Low for appointing me to such an important role. I am very excited to be working with you all on future strategy.”

Having worked as Sky News Business Editor, as an investigative reporter with Four Corners, and as a political reporter in Canberra before joining The Australian, Fullerton has been editor-at-large for the business section of the paper since January 2021.

“To my colleagues at The Australian, thank you. It has been wonderful to be surrounded by fearless journalists and grownups that have enriched my thinking and an extraordinary opportunity to spend time with business, political and other leaders,” Fullerton wrote.

“A big shout out and congratulations to Editor in Chief Michelle Gunn in her new role. Thank you for your support to take up this new challenge that I am so passionate about.”

Speaking about Fullerton’s appointment, Andrew Low, chairman of the Australian British Chamber of Commerce said: “Ticky will bring extensive experience and relationships to her leadership role after a decade in investment banking in both the United Kingdom and Australia, and many years of thought leadership as one of the nation’s most respected business journalist.

“The Australian British Chamber of Commerce now has more than 330 members covering every sector of Australia’s engagement with the UK and has become an essential interface between government and business, namely through its advocacy and involvement in the progression of the Australia-UK Free Trade Agreement, and in newer partnerships such as AUKUS.”
