Chris Chapman concluded his appointment in 2016 as the inaugural Chairman and Chief Executive of the Australian Media and Communications Authority (ACMA), the independent regulator of Australia's broadcasting, telecommunications, spectrum, and online services. His role was recognized by the Federal Minister for Communications as having been discharged for a decade with distinction.

He is the first president in the organization's nearly 50-year history to be appointed from the Asia Pacific region.
Since 2016, Chris' directorships and work have covered a broad spectrum of interests including philanthropic and not-for-profit, sports advisory work (particularly in the governance space), film script development, international media and communications developments, bleeding-edge digital technologies, and digital transformation consulting.
