14 August 2000 Media Statement
Tourism Board appointments

Four new appointments have been made to the nine member board of Tourism New Zealand, the Minister of Tourism Mark Burton announced today.

"The Board Deputy Chairman Jim Boult recently announced his unavailability due to other work commitments and three other Board members completed their terms in May this year.

"I want to acknowledge the valuable contributions of Jim Boult, Jim McCrea, Mike Simm and Murray Horn. They have done much to help the Tourism Board recover from the difficulties of last year. On behalf of the government I want to thank them for their service, and I am sure they will be appropriately farewelled at the Board meeting to be held later this week."

Peter Allport continues as Board Chairman and Wally Stone is the new Deputy Chair. Joining them and Bronwyn Monopoli, Peter Stubbs and Mike Tamaki on the Board are:

Keith Johnson:
A well-respected inbound tour operator whose company, ID Tours New Zealand Ltd, has been operating for around 25 years. ID Tours has offices in the US, UK and Japan and brings a significant number of tourists to New Zealand each year.

Mathew Boyd:
Experienced airline international marketing executive. He has a strong understanding of the dynamics of the airline sector, which is a key element of the tourism industry.

Liz Tennet:
Chairperson of Tourism Wairarapa and owner/operator of a small tourism business. She brings to the board a regional tourism focus, and having served as MP for Island Bay for 9 years, a good understanding of political processes.

Lex Henry:
Former Managing Director of the CDL Hotel group in New Zealand. Experienced investment banker with a keen interest in tourism research and forecasting.

"The new members bring an outstanding range of skills, experience and abilities to the Board. I am confident that the Board will continue to foster positive relationships with the government and the tourism industry as we work in partnership to ensure the sustainable development of New Zealand's tourism potential," Mark Burton said.
