Bob East, CEO, Mantra Group was elected to Board of Di­rec­tors of the Gold Coast Tourism at the cor­po­ra­tion’s An­nual Gen­eral Meet­ing held on De­cem­ber 1, 2011. East, a first time nom­i­nee, suc­cess­fully se­cured enough votes to make it on to the board out­right. The other board po­si­tion con­tenders, Dean Gould of Grif­fith Univer­sity and Bruce Ni­cholls of Tall Ships, were put to a ran­dom draw, as per the or­gan­i­sa­tion’s rules when equal votes are polled for can­di­dates. East is well po­si­tioned to pro­vide valu­able di­rec­tion as the Gold Coast gears up for the much an­tic­i­pated 2018 Com­mon­wealth Games. He wants to show­case to Australia and the world, the ad­van­tages of the Gold Coast be­ing host to in­ter­na­tional-scale events vis-a-vis their com­bined accommodat­ion ca­pac­ity, ac­ces­si­bil­ity, word class fa­cil­i­ties and nat­u­ral re­sources. The board is lead by re-elected Chair­man Paul Dono­van, COO Gold Coast Air­port and Vice-Chair Adrienne Read­ings, Gen­eral Man­ager Gold Coast Con­ven­tion and Ex­hi­bi­tion Cen­tre.
