Tourism Australia to consolidate New Zealand operations

Tourism Australia’s New Zealand Country Manager, Jenny Aitken, will be leaving at the end of the month, after five years in the role and over a decade with the organisation.

Tourism Australia’s focus in New Zealand will now be managed from the organisation’s headquarters in Sydney. The shift follows a global review of Tourism Australia’s strategy, which has already seen its UK business events operations successfully centralised.

“Jenny has been with Tourism Australia for almost twelve years now and, during that time, has done a tremendous job in driving the economic benefit for Australia within the New Zealand market,” said Tourism Australia managing director Phillipa Harrison.
