TTNQ CEO steps down

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

TOURISM Trop­i­cal North Queens­land (TTNQ) Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer Alex de Waal will leave the TTNQ team for a new ca­reer chal­lenge with a na­tional com­pany later this year.

Mr de Waal said he had been un­ex­pect­edly of­fered the role and would leave TTNQ know­ing that the or­gan­i­sa­tion was mak­ing great strides to­wards its vi­sion of be­ing recog­nised by the global tourism in­dus­try as Aus­tralia’s lead­ing Des­ti­na­tion Man­age­ment Or­gan­i­sa­tion.

“We have a highly mo­ti­vated and com­pe­tent team that has achieved sig­nif­i­cant suc­cess in the past three years,” he said.

“This glob­ally rel­e­vant suc­cess in­cludes the at­trac­tion of in­ter­na­tional in­vest­ment, new in­ter­na­tional ser­vices and the in­cep­tion of the Cit­i­zens of the Great Bar­rier Reef to en­gage cit­i­zens from all parts of this planet to take ac­tion to learn about, con­serve and en­joy the Great Bar­rier Reef.

“I am ex­tremely proud of hav­ing been a cat­a­lyst for pos­i­tive change in Trop­i­cal North Queens­land and enor­mously ap­pre­cia­tive of the hospi­tal­ity the Cairns com­mu­nity has ex­tended in my favour.

The TTNQ board will im­me­di­ately start a re­cruit­ment process seek­ing a new CEO.
