TIA CEO to step down at end March

Tourism Industry Association New Zealand (TIA) CEO Martin Snedden will step down from the role at the end of March, Chairman Grant Lilly has announced.

Mr Snedden took over as CEO of TIA in June 2012. During his time at TIA he has led the development of the Tourism 2025 growth framework, which aims to help the $23.9 billion tourism industry achieve strong, durable long-term economic growth. Tourism 2025 is due to be publicly released in early March.

“On behalf of TIA’s board of directors, I would like wish Martin all the best for his future and thank him for his efforts at TIA,” Mr Lilly said.

“He has been instrumental in strengthening tourism industry alignment at the national level, and has steered the way for the industry to face the challenges of the next decade.”

Mr Snedden said he had enjoyed his role at TIA and being involved in an industry that is a key economic driver for New Zealand’s economy.

“However, my involvement with New Zealand Cricket has been increasing recently and it has become unrealistic for me to carry out both roles effectively. With the imminent release of Tourism 2025, I have decided this is an appropriate time for me to step down from TIA.”

The search for a new CEO for TIA would begin immediately, Mr Lilly said.
