Hospitality experts lend hand
TWO of the Tweed's top hospitality managers will lend their industry expertise to promote the area as the newest members of the Tweed and Coolangatta Tourism board.
The general manager of Twin Towns, Rob Smith, and the manager of the soon-to-be-opened Peppers Resort and Spa at Salt, Michael Saville, join a panel of experienced industry professionals to create a new "powerhouse" board elected at TACTIC's annual general meeting.
TACTIC general manager Terry Watson is excited by the appointments.
"Rob Smith and Michael Saville will be working with Gary Matthews and Clive Parker who both operate leading bed and breakfast establishments; David Parrish from the multi-million dollar Casu- arina Beach development; Richard Adams from Tweed Shire Council's Tweed Coast Holiday Parks, Tweed Shire Council administrator Max Boyd and council's governance officer, Neil Baldwin.
"As such, the local industry can be assured that the interests of tourism operators and the Tweed community will be well looked after as our new team works together to promote the region and develop improved tourism infrastructure."
With Mr Matthews serving as acting chairman, the new TACTIC board positions will be determined at their first official meeting next month.
Meanwhile, multi-million-dollar Peppers Resort and Spa at Salt, the newest luxury resort on the Tweed Coast is due to receive its first guests today.
