Devonport resident and self-described computer geek, Stephen England-Hall, says heading Tourism New Zealand was never part of his original long-term plan. Stephen was running Loyalty New Zealand, which operates Fly Buys when he was headhunted for this position.
Tourism New Zealand gets government funding of $117 million a year and given his experience as a digital pioneer, his fit with the organisation is logical. Most of this funding is used for marketing and digital campaigns which have sparked the interest of Google and Facebook, which run test campaigns in association with the tourism agency.
