I am excited and appreciative to be on the TCCI board. I have worked for Ngāi Tahu Tourism for the over 17 years. This has been in varied roles and locations.

I am passionate about the pristine and beautiful environment that I work in. As Business Manager for Hukafalls Jet I feel that I am able to bring a strong voice to connect the Tourism Sector to other business platforms to grow and expand business across all sectors in the Taupo District.

Having lived in Queenstown for most of my life growing up in a vibrant bustling community based town. I am lucky enough to have been relocated to another town that not only has amazing natural assets, but also has a Business Community that has the Taupo Districts interests at heart as well.

I look forward to the challenges ahead and the difference that the Chamber of Commerce can make to bridge the gap and make some of those challenges less daunting.

Simon is Business Manager for Hukafalls Jet.
