TIANZ Chairman Welcomes Announcement

The Chairman of the Tourism Industry Association New Zealand (TIANZ), Geoff Burns, today welcomed the appointment of Wally Stone as the new Chairman of Tourism New Zealand.

“Wally brings a wealth of business management and tourism experience to the role of Chairman of Tourism New Zealand. He joins TNZ at an exciting time for the tourism industry, with visitor numbers back on track, and the attendant challenges, which come with a growing industry,” Mr Burns said.

“I look forward to working with Wally to further the interests of the Industry.”

“I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Peter Allport for the impressive contribution he has made to the tourism industry over the past three years,” Geoff Burns said.
