JOHANNESBURG, 30 July 2018 – Graeme Edmond has been appointed divisional sales and marketing executive for integrated tourism group Tourvest’s Accommodation and Activities division with effect from 1 August 2018.
Tourvest Accommodation and Activities comprises tourism activity operators Wild Horizons and Mankwe-Gametrackers, the Lemala camps in Tanzania and Uganda, the Adrift Nile-rafting company in Uganda, Drifters Overland Tours and aha Hotels and Lodges.
Edmond oversaw the sales and marketing function at aha Hotels and Lodges and his responsibilities have now been extended to all the business entities within the division. Gary Elmes, divisional chief executive, says this is a natural progression for Edmond, who has been at aha more than ten years and is now in a position to apply his considerable knowledge and expertise on the marketing and sales front across the division’s entire portfolio.
“I’d like to congratulate Graeme on his well-deserved promotion and wish him all the best with his increased responsibilities which, knowing Graeme, he’ll tackle with relish and determination,” Elmes says.
