CHAIRPERSON/Acting General manager

After a lifetime of visiting the Wakatipu Craig made a permanent move to Arrowtown in 2010 and joined NZSki Ltd as General Manager Sales & Marketing. In 2017 he moved to Skyline as General Manager Marketing and then to his current role as Commercial Manager in May 2018. Craig 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. 

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.
