Rebecca has over ten years of experience in the field of marketing and communications, with significant experience leading and developing successful public relations campaigns and large scale events during her time at both Telecom and the Chartered Accountants (Institute) Australia and NZ.
Most recently in her role as General Manager - Brand, Marketing and Communications at the Institute she lead the amalgamation of the Australian and New Zealand marketing and communications teams and the development of a new marketing and PR strategy across both geographies.
Chief Executive Kevin Bowler says he is delighted that Rebecca will be joining the extended leadership team on 7 July, based in Tourism New Zealand's Wellington office.
"It's great that we have been able to attract such a high calibre candidate to this very important role within Tourism New Zealand.
"I would also like to thank Jo Jalfon who has been acting GM - PR & Major Events since Catherine's departure. Jo will continue on in her role leading our 2015 World Cup leverage programme."
