Myers has previously worked in marketing departments for Huka Falls Resort, Shotover Jet, Dart River Jet Safaris and Ngai Tahu Tourism Limited as well as sitting on the board for Tourism West Coast and Backpacker Youth and Adventure Travel.
“Kerry brings a wealth of industry knowledge, familiarity with the Southern Lakes tourism environment and current marketing experience relevant to our sector,” Southern Discoveries CEO Tim Hunter said.
“Over the past 15 years, she’s worked in a range of senior sales and marketing roles for Ngai Tahu Tourism and most recently held the position of Marketing Manager for Shotover Jet, Dart River Adventures and Dart Stables.”
“With strong analytical skills and extensive experience in sales management, Kerry is also very passionate about tourism in the area, and the strong network of industry relationships she’s developed will be highly valued within the company.”
Myers said she looks forward to working for a company that offers experiences in nature in a unique New Zealand location.
“Throughout my career, I’ve always chosen to work with businesses that not only show off the very best of New Zealand’s scenery, adventure and hospitality but also align with my values of preservation and social sustainability,” Myers said.
“Southern Discoveries fits that bill perfectly, so I’m very excited to be joining their proud and passionate team.”
