Search on For Innovative Person
To Lead Rotorua Airport

ROTORUA 08.01.13: Rotorua International Airport is currently searching for a new chief executive to help shape the airport’s future.

Current chief executive George White is leaving next month to take up a new role at Polynesian Spa. His last day at Rotorua International Airport is 7 February.

Mr White has overseen the development of the airport and commencement of trans-Tasman services, providing an international link to Sydney, Australia.

“Rotorua International Airport has a solid reputation of being very creative, with a dedicated team committed to the airport’s future success. This loyal team will be a tremendous support to the new chief executive,” said Mr White.

Rotorua International Airport chairman Ray Cook said the airport is a significant infrastructural asset for Rotorua and wider Bay of Plenty/Waikato regions.

“It is essential that the new chief executive has an innovative management approach and strong collaboration skills. The role involves close working relationships with regional tourism organisations, and other airports and airlines so these skills are vital to lift the airport to the next level in its development programme.

“The tough times in the tourism industry also represent a significant challenge so the new chief executive will need to develop an understanding of tourism flows and their drivers.”

Mr Cook said there had already been strong interest in the position.

“It’s a unique opportunity for the right person to help shape the airport’s future and its ability to contribute to the region’s economic wellbeing.”

The Rotorua International Airport chief executive job description and application form is on the airport website www.rotorua-airport.co.nz. Applications close Friday 18 January at 4pm.
