In line with the direction of the associations strategic plan for 2022/23, the Council of Australian Tour Operators (CATO) has today announced the appointment of Brett Harvey as Business Development & Events Manager.
This new role, which will sit across both CATO and sister association, the Student Educational Travel Organisation (SETO), will be fundamental in expanding membership, re-establishing and growing CATO’s annual events program and identifying new revenue opportunities for both associations.
Brett has over 22 years’ experience in the travel industry and largely known for his Business Development and Partnership roles of 5 years with the Intrepid Group, and his role of 12 years with The Travel Corporation. He has spent the last two years in Bangkok teaching tourism, enterprise and entrepreneurship courses.
“As we move into the recovery phase, we recognise the increased support and initiatives that is needed for our membership, to help them through these challenging times. Bringing in additional revenue streams will allow us to realise and activate our plans across multiple areas, to further assist our members as they rebuild their businesses” said CATO Managing Director, Brett Jardine.
“It is an exciting time for CATO and Brett Harvey - his knowledge and experience will add great value to the CATO membership” added Jardine.
