A chat with new CEO

Mt Buller News - - FRONT PAGE -

WITH Mark Ben­netts (pic­tured) on board as the new chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer of the Mt Buller & Mt Stir­ling Re­sort Man­age­ment,

Mt Buller News thought we’d catch up ev­ery cou­ple of weeks and chat about how things are go­ing.

Buller News (BN): Let’s start with your ap­point­ment - how long will you be here?

which is re­duc­ing the long queue through the Vil­lage Square.

Cost is an­other con­cern.

I agree with views that the RMB struc­ture was too “top heavy”, so we’re not re­plac­ing some va­cant se­nior po­si­tions.

BN: So in wrap­ping up, what big­ger is­sues have been raised?

the vis­i­tor ex­pe­ri­ence.

It needs to be eas­ier to get to the moun­tains and ac­com­mo­da­tion.

Day-trip­pers shouldn’t have to be turned away on busy week­ends.

We need more snow­play ar­eas so vis­i­tors can have a great time in a safe en­vi­ron­ment.

We need to make it eas­ier for the stream of peo­ple walk­ing up­hill from the Vil­lage Square to Ski School.

We need more vis­i­tor fa­cil­i­ties in and around the Vil­lage Square.

And the moun­tain needs to be able to ac­com­mo­date more staff so that we can serve our vis­i­tors.

I’m con­vinced we can progress all th­ese ar­eas by work­ing con­struc­tively to­gether.

This will be my fo­cus in the com­ing weeks and months.
