Thala Beach Nature Reserve, a family owned private nature and wildlife reserve in Tropical North Queensland, is delighted to appoint Wade Bowen to the position of Sales & Marketing Manager.
Based at the beachfront property south of Port Douglas, Wade replaces Michelle Behsman following her resignation to concentrate on personal business pursuits.
Wade has extensive experience in the travel, tourism and aviation industries including former sales and management roles at Qantas Trade & Travel Centre, Qantas Airways and Cobham Aviation Services. He is excited to take up this coveted position and is looking forward to welcoming industry and guests to this iconic north Queensland retreat.
“I’m thrilled to represent one of Queensland’s most highly acclaimed eco retreats. Wedged between World Heritage rainforest and the Great Barrier Reef we’re surrounded by natural beauty. The ocean, mountain and rainforest views enjoyed from every vantage point across Thala’s vast grounds are simply stunning,” Wade says.
“I’m really looking forward to working with industry partners to capitilise on Thala’s market-leading position.”
The Sales & Marketing role is pivotal to Thala’s ongoing success which saw it recently nominated in Australia’s Top Ten Hotels & Resorts. Wade is responsible for maintaining and increasing sales, establishing new clients and servicing existing customers while developing sales, marketing and business strategies.
