The director of a pioneering family-owned tourism group and the general manager of an Aboriginal trust with investments in the Daintree and the Savannah Way have joined the Board of Tourism Tropical North Queensland (TTNQ) following the 2021 Annual General Meeting today (October 21).
Director of Sales and Marketing at The CaPTA Group Ben Woodward was elected as a General Director. Mr Woodward is well connected to the inbound tourism sector which will be vital for the industry’s return to international travel. As a director of his family’s company he has been a vocal supplier representative for the destination during the pandemic.
Unopposed as the Tropical Tablelands and Remote Zone Director, Brian Arnold is the Group General Manager of the Aboriginal Development Benefit Trust representing Doomadgee Roadhouse. Established under the Gulf Communities Agreement, the Trust provides strategic and development support for its investments including the Daintree Discovery Centre, Burketown Pub and Ancient Journeys.
TTNQ Chair Ken Chapman thanked the retiring Directors – Sam Ferguson from Destination Cairns Marketing, Paul Fagg from Skybury Coffee, and Mark Evans from Paronella Park – for their contribution.
