Tourism boss search ends
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”.
