THE Shoalhaven has a new tourism manager – and he’s busting to get started selling a product he knows is world class.
“It was a wonderful opportunity in a place I’ve chosen to call home,” said Steve Lawson from Shoalhaven Heads, whose appointment was announced by Shoalhaven City Council on Friday.
“I think it’s important to recognise the Shoalhaven has a great reputation. What’s been done to date has been done well. I’ll look at what’s been done in the past and improve on it.”
Mr Lawson was recently employed as relationships manager with the NSW Business Chamber.
He has also held positions as director at Savvy Communications, general manager for entertainment at Brand New Media and head of sponsorship and events at Vodafone Australia.
Council general manager Russ Pigg said Mr Lawson brought a great deal of private industry experience to the role.
