THE DESTINATION Tweed Board has made an official statement to the media today advising that Bill Tatchell has resigned from his role as CEO to “take some time with his family before pursuing other interests in the tourism industry”.
Destination Tweed Chairman Aymon Gow said during his role as CEO, Mr Tatchell had seen visitation to the Tweed sky rocket to in excess of two million visitors per year and overnight visitation increase to its highest ever levels since research began.
“Bill has taken the region of the Tweed to the rest of Australia, China and the
world through the Australian Tourism Exchange and international sales missions
with Tourism Australia and Destination NSW,” the statement reads.
“Bill and his team have worked hard over the last five years to put the Tweed on the map, and the numbers show that the work they have been doing is paying off, with more still to come,” Mr Gow said.
“The board appreciate the hard work and dedication that Bill has shown to his role and to the region and sincerely thank him for his efforts.”
