Tassie has new tourism boss

TOURISM Tasmania has announced another Northern Territory tourism guru will take on its top job.

Tourism NT chief executive John Fitzgerald has been appointed as chief executive of the state's peak tourism marketing body.

In a strange twist, outgoing chief executive Tony Mayell has returned to the Northern Territory to take on Mr Fitzgerald's job with Tourism NT.

Mr Fitzgerald will start in his role with Tourism Tasmania on January 7.

Tourism Minister Scott Bacon said Mr Fitzgerald had "a wealth of knowledge and experience".

"As well as his work with Tourism NT, John has worked as CEO of Tourism Sunshine Coast and chief operating officer for the nation's Sustainable Tourism Cooperative Research Centre," Mr Bacon said in a statement.

He said the appointment followed a nationwide recruitment process, headed by Tourism Tasmania chairman Grant Hunt.

"Grant and the selection panel have worked swiftly and effectively to fill this key role, following the resignation of Tony Mayell in August, and I commend them for their work," he said.

Mr Fitzgerald said Tasmania's tourism had undergone major changes in recent years and was building on its strong profile experiences such as its walks, food and wine, heritage, culture and the arts, golf and World-Heritage listed assets.

"The state is really well placed to take advantage of new air services and all the work done in the last couple of years," he said.

Mr Mayell finished up with Tourism Tasmania earlier this month, after just 15 months in the role.

He came to Tasmania from the Northern Territory and has returned to tackle Mr Fitzgerald's old job.
