It was no surprise that Greyhound Australia’s Chief Operations Officer Tony Hopkins was voted into the QBIC presidency for a three year term, replacing Clarks Logan City General Manager Graham Davis who remains involved with QBIC on its management committee.

Hopkins will be joined on QBIC’s Executive by Vice-President Rolf Mitchell, and continuing incumbent Treasurer Skye Naismith.

Joining Hopkins, Mitchell, Naismith and immediate past president Davis on the QBIC management committee are Darren Webster, Darren Crossley, Murray Priebbenow, Vernon Alcantra and Peter Bellingham.
