New appointment to AOT Group Contracting Team

12th of April, 2012

The AOT Group is pleased to announce the appointment of James Munro to the newly created role of Senior Contracting and Destination Manager Queensland. James joins the AOT Contracting team to focus on the biggest selling destination in the AOT portfolio, with direct responsibility for the Gold and Sunshine Coasts.

"We are seeing encouraging signs of recovery both in the domestic and inbound markets and it is important to be innovative and creative with our offering". Queensland in general and the Gold Coast in particular have being suffering from the downturn in leisure business and we need to proactively have product offerings which are compelling. Having James based in the area will be key to achieve this objective", said Simon O'Kelly, Group General Manager Contracting.

"James's  experience in the domestic leisure market and his knowledge of Sunlover Holidays through his previous roles at Mantra Group, Rydges and Queensland Rail, provides a fantastic platform to reinvigorate our Queensland product portfolio. Queensland is still our number one destination and we see enormous opportunities in the year ahead", said Leanne Chard, General Manager Sunlover Holidays.

James Munro will be in attendance at ATE 2012 in Perth in late June.
