Augusta Margaret River Times - - News -

Mar­garet River-Bus­sel­ton Tourism As­so­ci­a­tion has ended its hunt for a top-level chief ex­ec­u­tive to re­place Pip Close.

WA cre­ative Claire Sav­age will start on Novem­ber 27 after mul­ti­ple round of in­ter­views showed Ms Sav­age as a clear fron­trun­ner.

Ms Sav­age has worked as a high­level con­sul­tant in the tourism sec­tor and most re­cently worked on Tourism WA’s Taste 2020 food and wine strat­egy.

MRBTA chairman Trent Bartlett said the new chief ex­ec­u­tive would help lead growth of “the role tourism plays in the Mar­garet River re­gion as a key ele­ment of the eco­nomic fu­tures of our mem­bers and their com­mu­ni­ties”.

The chairman said Ms Sav­age had “ex­ten­sive knowl­edge of the WA tourism in­dus­try and strong re­la­tion­ships with its key stake­hold­ers”.
