Two new appointments as Te Pae Christchurch bolsters business development team

Te Pae Christchurch Convention Centre has further strengthened its business development team, with the appointment of two new business development managers.

Business development managers (Australia) Angela King and Mel Wong will be joining director of business development Gillian Officer and business development manager (New Zealand) Hayley McKay.

Angela King is returning to Christchurch for the new role.

King is returning to Christchurch from Queenstown, where she was the executive assistant manager at Novotel Lakeside.

Working alongside King in the Australian market will be Wong, who joins Te Pae Christchurch from Christchurch International Airport, where she was trade development manager.

“The team we are building in the business development area of Te Pae Christchurch come from many backgrounds and disciplines but have proven themselves as experts in their fields,” Officer said.

“All have demonstrated a commitment to making a difference to the regeneration of the city through the work done by Te Pae Christchurch.

“I have no doubt they will deliver a great result for Te Pae Christchurch and for the city of Christchurch as we work towards our opening in October 2020.”
