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:
