Matakana Coast Tourism has appointed Gregg Anderson to the position of manager.
Chair Richard Didsbury says the board is delighted to have someone of Anderson’s calibre joining the organisation. He has extensive tourism experience, having spent 27 years with Tourism New Zealand.
Didsbury says that despite the encouraging signs of a recovery in the tourism sector, local tourism and hospitality businesses are going to have to continue to work in a very coordinated fashion to succeed.
“Especially alongside other key stakeholders such as Auckland Unlimited and Tourism New Zealand,” he says.
“Together, we will continue to rebuild a sustainable and resilient visitor base by ensuring potential visitors are aware of the wide offering available”.
Didsbury says the new manager has an extensive marketing and tourism background, with time spent in London, Sydney and Los Angeles for Tourism New Zealand.
“For the past five years, Gregg has been managing sustainability and quality assurance subsidiary Qualmark. He brings broad experience, strong contacts throughout the industry and a passion for sustainable tourism that aligns closely with the offerings of the region.”
