Damon brings a vast amount of experience in governance to the role, which includes 11 years as an Alderman with the Hobart City Council, three of which as Lord Mayor. In addition to his work with the Hobart City Council, Damon’s resume boasts appointments including Tasmanian Crown Solicitor, CEO of the Tasmanian Chamber of Commerce and Industry, State Ombudsman and Health Complaints Commissioner and Chairman of the Hobart City Council Finance Committee.
