Oscar Nathan wins DRM role
Destination Rotorua Marketing’s new general manager is to be Oscar Nathan, and he will take up the role in early January.
According to Rotorua’s Daily Post, Nathan, 39, has been a business adviser with the Poutama Trust and is currently deputy chairman of the New Zealand Tourism Industry Association, a board member of Te Puia and New Zealand Hospitality Standards Institute, a council member of Waiariki Institute of Technology and chairman of Maori in Tourism Rotorua. He was on the council’s tourism committee before resigning earlier this year, along with Rotorua hotel manager Marcus Keenan.
The paper says Nathan would retain some positions, which complemented Destination Rotorua Marketing and his new role, but would step down from others such as his chairmanship of Maori in Tourism Rotorua and directorship of Te Puia. He will join his wife Renee Nathan at Destination Rotorua Marketing. She was appointed business marketing manager in November to promote the city as a great place to live, work and invest.
