Tourism industry leaders join TIA board

Tourism industry leaders join TIA board

Three of the tourism industry’s most senior executives are joining the board of the Tourism Industry Association New Zealand (TIA).

Air New Zealand Chief Executive Christopher Luxon, Auckland Airport Chief Executive Adrian Littlewood and Tourism Holdings Limited (thl) Chief Executive Grant Webster will join the TIA board this month, chairman Grant Lilly has announced.

“Through the development and release of Tourism 2025 – Growing Value Together/Whakatipu Uara Ngatahi, TIA has grown its leadership role for the tourism industry,” Mr Lilly says.

“Christopher, Adrian and Grant have all been strong supporters of Tourism 2025. They are committed to supporting TIA and the tourism industry to achieve the Tourism 2025 aspirational goal of contributing $41 billion a year to New Zealand’s economy by 2025.”

Tourism 2025 brings a range of opportunities for TIA to grow its value to members. A strong board of directors will strengthen the association’s capability and increase its influence, Mr Lilly says.

He thanked outgoing board members Phil de Joux, Head of Government Affairs and Industry Relations for Air New Zealand; Charles Spillane, General Counsel and General Manager Corporate Affairs for Auckland Airport; and Kay Howe, a thlDirector for their contributions to TIA.
