Andrew Pitt

Andrew left Launceston as an 18 year old in 1992, returned in 2009 and decided to stay. He is now heavily involved in the family businesses, consisting mainly of Neil Pitt’s Menswear but also accommodation and commercial property. Andrew has worked as a consultant for the local water industry and more recently for the University of Tasmania on the Northern Transformation’s connectivity to the Central City. He completed the Tasmanian Leaders Program in 2014 and is involved in establishing the Welcome Dinner Project in Tasmania. He chairs Launceston’s Creative Cities Steering Group which is building a bid for Launceston to be designated as a UNESCO Creative City of Gastronomy in 2021. He is a director of the Tasmanian Breath of Fresh Air Film Festival.

Andrew’s background includes a science degree from the University of Tasmania followed by several years of heart research in Sydney, then health economics and eye allergy research at the University of Oxford. Following completion of a Masters in Environmental Management at Macquarie University, Andrew worked in local government in Hampshire (UK), with a primary focus on managing a multi-sector water partnership, but also involvement in corporate sustainability, festival organisation and community engagement. His final move in the UK was to Norwich in 2007 to establish a regional water efficiency programme, focusing on government, developers and the planning system but also including work with the British Standards Institute on rainwater and greywater standards.

Andrew joined the Chamber Board in 2014 and since then has spent time as Vice President and as the Chamber’s representative on the Cityprom board, which he chaired for almost three years. He became Chamber President in November 2019.
