Ex-Ingenia COO Nikki Fisher announced as CEO of holiday park operator Tasman Tourism

Published on

Nikki Fisher has been recruited to drive the next stage of Tasman Tourism’s growth and consolidation within Australia and New Zealand’s fast-growing holiday park sector.

Over eight years at Ingenia, Ms Fisher had primary responsibility for leading its day-to-day operations including the development of strategic operational plans and financial operational management. In that time, it grew from a $100 million business to a $1.3 billion business.

Tasman Tourism began as a start-up in November 2019, and has since expanded its network of holiday parks to include 14 across Australia and four in New Zealand.

Tasman Tourism Chairman Rob Nichols – who is also the Executive Chairman and CEO of land lease operator Serenitas – says Ms Fisher will bring a wealth of experience to the role.

“Under her leadership, we look forward to the business developing into a significant player within the exciting New Zealand and Australian experiential tourism segment,” he said.

“This is a critical time for the sector, given its rebuild and its staged reopening following the COVID-19 pandemic, and having Nikki at the helm will ensure Tasman Tourism consolidates its place as a market innovator.”

“I have a deep passion for the industry, and see the next few years presenting a rare and unique opportunity to redefine how our customers embrace experience based domestic and trans-Tasman holidays,” added Ms Fisher.

The new CEO started in the role yesterday.
