New CEO for Falls

Alpine News - - On The Slopes -

THE FALLS Creek Alpine Re­sort Man­age­ment Board has ap­pointed a new chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer, Stu­art Smythe.

Mr Smythe comes to the role with not just a pas­sion for the out­doors, the en­vi­ron­ment and sus­tain­abil­ity, but sup­ple­ments this with a di­verse and global busi­ness back­ground.

Mr Smythe has a demon­stra­ble track record of es­tab­lish­ing, build­ing and grow­ing new en­ti­ties into out­stand­ing busi­nesses, to­gether with a back­ground trans­form­ing and driv­ing or­gan­i­sa­tional change across busi­nesses in Aus­tralia, North America, In­dia and Ja­pan.

A long time vis­i­tor to Falls Creek and a reg­u­lar at Falls Creek Coun­try Club, Mr Smythe is an avid snow sports en­thu­si­ast and has been an ac­tive fi­nan­cial backer of snow sport re­lated films and has backed in­no­va­tive prod­uct de­vel­op­ments re­lated to the in­dus­try.

Mr Smythe in­di­cated that he is ac­tively look­ing for­ward to the chal­lenge of grow­ing the Falls Creek brand.

“The most re­cent de­vel­op­ments in the snow sports in­dus­try in Aus­tralia, namely sig­nif­i­cant in­vest­ment from offshore, pro­vides mean­ing­ful val­i­da­tion for the do­mes­tic in­dus­try and will present dy­namic op­por­tu­ni­ties for those key play­ers with the right in­fra­struc­ture, strate­gic part­ners, in­vest­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties and strat­egy,” Mr Smythe said.

“I am tremen­dously ex­cited with where Falls Creek is po­si­tioned to ben­e­fit from such de­vel­op­ment, along with the ap­pli­ca­tion of the board’s Mas­ter Plan and the ded­i­ca­tion of the re­sort staff and key stake­hold­ers to en­sur­ing Falls Creek is the pre-em­i­nent out­door moun­tain des­ti­na­tion for all sea­sons.”
