After a lifetime of visiting the Wakatipu area Craig made a permanent move to live in Arrowtown in 2010. Having been schooled in Dunedin he has a strong affinity with the area. He has an extensive background in sales and marketing through a range of industries and markets, developed through experience with major New Zealand companies such as DB Breweries and most recently Fisher & Paykel Appliances where he was Vice President of Sales & Marketing during their growth to becoming a global brand. Craig was involved in the early years of Queenstown Winter Festival in his role as Sponsorship Manager for DB Breweries for those who can remember Kiwi Lager and Export Dry. His current role as General Manager Sales & Marketing for NZSki Ltd ensures he is close to the key tourism markets and engaged with this important commercial channel on a daily basis.
Craig is passionate about the tourism industry as one of the few commercial areas where New Zealand has a global advantage. Queenstown and the wider Wakatipu area is a vibrant community that offers huge potential for small and large businesses. The concentration of natural riches and energetic innovative people provides an environment where the Chamber can make a real difference for those who wish to be actively involved.
