New CCT directors appointed

1 May 2014

Three new directors have been appointed to the board of Christchurch & Canterbury Tourism (CCT).

Two Christchurch City Councillors, Jimmy Chen and Ali Jones have been appointed to replace previous Councillors, Claudia Reid and Helen Broughton.

Kath Low has been appointed as an independent director and replaces Scott Wallace, who has moved overseas. She is a Christchurch marketing consultant, with experience in hotel and tourism industry marketing.

Board chairman Dave Hawkey welcomed the new appointments, saying the board would benefit from the broad experience, skill sets and knowledge they would bring to Christchurch & Canterbury Tourism as it moved into an important phase of recovery post earthquakes.
