Three new faces for Tourism Whitsundays board
Naomi McKinnon, owner of the Fat Frog Beach Café, Jess Bruce from The Wedding Planners and Greg Waites, general manager at Coral Sea Resort, were elected to the board. Jan Claxton, from Ocean Rafting, and Toni Ward, from Whitsunday Jetski Tours, were re-elected for the second term
Board member Al Grundy was elected as chairperson, with Nick Hortle as deputy chair, Greg Waites as treasurer and Andrew Telford as secretary.
“I would like to make special mention and thanks to the outgoing board members Trevor Rees, David Stielow and Scott Wilkinson,” said Grundy.
“Throughout a very trying 12 months, they have made a significant contribution to the destination during the separation of Whitsundays Marketing and Development Limited.”
Tourism Whitsundays CEO Craig Turner said it was great to have a strong, robust and passionate board of directors.
“The Tourism Whitsundays board provides the strategic direction for destination marketing in the Whitsundays and they volunteer their time to contribute on behalf of the industry,” he said.
“Our team is looking forward to an engaged board that is enthusiastic and can continue to drive the organisation to position the destination as one of the best places in the world to visit.”
