THE Man­jimup Vis­i­tor Cen­tre last week wel­comed its new man­ager, who has some fresh ideas for the cen­tre mov­ing for­ward.

Jor­dan Pig­gott moved back to Man­jimup for the po­si­tion after spend­ing five years in Perth.

“I was work­ing for a not-for­profit in Perth and I thought this was a good time for a change,” he said.

Mr Pig­gott is the son of the cen­tre’s pre­vi­ous man­ager Roy Pig­gott and says he had ideas on how to ex­pand the cen­tre’s reach.

“I bring new ideas and a fresh un­der­stand­ing of mar­ket­ing, and how to mod­ernise the cen­tre within the re­gion,” he said.

His ideas in­clude a big­ger on­line pres­ence to fur­ther en­hance the cen­tre’s reach.

“This re­gion has a lot to of­fer and has a big part to play in tourism in the fu­ture,” Mr Pig­gott said.

“The Man­jimup shire it­self has a lot to of­fer in food tourism.

“I think we can tie our­selves in with Mar­garet River and Duns­bor­ough and re­ally get our name out there.”

He added the job had been “fan­tas­tic so far” but said he had a lot of work to do.
