The Victorian Authorised Newsagents Association (VANA) has pleasure in announcing Brendan Tohill as CEO of VANA effective July 1, 2019.

Over the last 12 months, Brendan has been instrumental in implementing new and existing strategies for our members through his vision, commercial acumen, enthusiasm and commitment to you and your business. This has been extremely well received by industry partners, Government and of course the VANA membership base which has grown significantly under his leadership.

VANA recognises the challenge for small business and especially the Newsagency channel however the Board has developed new and exciting opportunities that have opened new revenue streams for Newsagents. Brendan has been very much part of developing and implementing these strategies for the betterment of the Newsagency industry overall and the VANA Board is fully supportive of his efforts.

Brendan has also been instrumental in developing improved communications to Members via the Video Newsletter and Social Media. Together with Nparcel and Nadvert we are providing opportunities for newsagents to increase foot traffic to their stores and improved profitability.
