In her new role at NORA, Franks will be responsible for the day-to-day management of the industry body, including member services, partnership opportunities, and events.
“We are excited to announce the appointment of Corinne Franks to this new role,” said Paul Greenberg, founder and executive director of NORA. “Her background in the digital industry will be hugely valuable, as well as her extensive events experience.
“This is a natural progression for NORA as we expand our network and member services. We welcome Corinne aboard as we commence the next stage of our journey,” he said.
Franks has previously been the GM of AIMIA (The Digital Industry Association of Australia) as well as GM conferences and events for Hanover Fairs Australia.
NORA has recently added Supply Chain & Logistics to its chapters, and said Payments, Marketplaces, Security, Digital Marketing, Data and Insights are set to follow.
“NORA is a wonderful opportunity to help the future growth of new retail, one of Australia’s most important sectors as we enter the digital economy,” said Franks. “I look forward to working with the team and our industry partners as we develop new member services and continue to support the sector.”
