Southern Discoveries announce leadership changes –

One of New Zealand’s most experienced tourism professionals is retiring and a well known industry stalker is stepping into the role in July.

Queenstown’s Southern Discoveries owner, Skeggs Group has announced the retirement of CEO Tim Hunter and is delighted to confirm the appointment of former GM Sales and Marketing, Kerry Walker to the role of CEO.

Kerry has 25 years of tourism experience, the last four-and-a-half of which have been spent at Southern Discoveries. In the previous 15 years, she worked in a range of senior sales and marketing roles for Ngāi Tahu Tourism.

During her time with Southern Discoveries her sales and marketing skills have proved invaluable to the company, along with her strong industry networks.

Southern Discoveries has been owned and operated by the Skeggs Group since 2009 and company director David Skeggs says he welcomes Kerry into her new role.

“It is fantastic that we have been able to make an internal appointment and give Kerry the opportunity to showcase her unique skills and experience that will continue to drive the company forward,” he said.

Tim Hunter retires after seven years spent as Southern Discoveries’ CEO following extensive experience in the New Zealand aviation, coach transport and destination marketing sectors.

Those roles have included working as a commercial pilot in the Southern Lakes area, holding airline planning roles with Air New Zealand, and working in a number of senior general management roles, including GM Marketing with The Mount Cook Group during the 1990s.

Tim broadened his international market experience with Tourism New Zealand as Regional Manager for Americas & Europe and General Manager Operations, and in 2010 became Chief Executive of Christchurch & Canterbury Tourism (CCT).

“Tim has done a superb job of running the business during his tenure, especially during some very challenging times during Covid,” said David Skeggs.

“He would be the first to say he couldn’t have done it without the support of all his team and I’m sure he will be missed by all.”

Kerry says Southern Discoveries is an industry leader that delivers exceptional nature experiences in this “unique” part of New Zealand.

“I’ve always worked within businesses that show off the very best of New Zealand’s scenery, adventure and hospitality, and align with my values ​​of preservation and social sustainability.

“Southern Discoveries fits that bill perfectly.” Kerry takes up her new role on July 17.
