Jacqui Lloyd of Destination Marlborough was elected deputy chairman and David Kriel of Napier Port is treasurer.
Summers said she is delighted to have the confidence of the board, as continuity is important at this critical time in New Zealand’s cruise industry.
The new board was announced at last Tuesday’s annual general meeting which was held as a Zoom call with the country in lockdown.
Newcomers are David Kriel (Napier Port), Oscar Nathan (Tourism Bay of Plenty) and Avinash Murthy (Ports of Auckland).
They joined existing members Debbie Summers, Jacqui Lloyd, Kevin Winders (Port Otago), Douglas Colaco (ISS McKay), Sean Marsh (Te Puia) and Tansy Tompkins (Tourism New Zealand’s representative).
