Tourism Fiji has announced the appointment of Brent Hill as Chief Executive Officer. Brent, who most recently was the Executive Director of Marketing for the South Australian Tourism Commission, brings over 16 years of experience in tourism and digital marketing, advertising, branding, communications, campaign, and executive strategy to Fiji’s National Tourism Office. He replaces former CEO Matt Stoeckel, whose tenure ended in December 2020.
Commenting on Hill’s appointment, Tourism Fiji Chairman Andre Viljoen said: “Brent shone through in the extremely rigorous recruitment process initiated and conducted by the Board with PwC’s assistance, for a CEO to lead Tourism Fiji in these unprecedented times, where international tourism activity has been zero for over a year now. His proven expertise, experience and ideas for the industry’s revival are a perfect fit for Fiji’s current requirements.
Fijian Minister for Tourism, Faiyaz Koya also welcomed Brent Hill’s appointment as Tourism Fiji’s CEO.
