A former Tourism Fiji chief executive, Josefa Tuamoto has been appointed as CEO of the Solomon Islands Visitors Bureau.
A statement from the Bureau says Mr Tuamoto was the catalyst for repositioning Fiji’s tourism internationally under the highly successful and very high profile ‘Fiji Me’ branding.
Since leaving Tourism Fiji, Mr Tuamoto worked as a senior consultant to government bodies and major private sector organisations in several countries across the South Pacific region.
He holds an MBA from the University of Wales and has also completed management studies at Harvard Business School, Wharton Business School and the University of Hawaii.
Announcing the appointment in Honiara this week, the Solomon Islands Visitors Bureau board chairman, Moses Tepai called on the local tourism industry and the international travel trade media to throw their full support behind the new CEO.
