Rob Tandy and his wife Louise (nee-McGeary), the daughter of APT owner Geoff McGeary, have recently taken over the running of APT’s Kimberley Wilderness Adventures. They will continue the active involvement the family has had delivering adventure experiences to passengers in the Kimberley for over 40 years.
APT’s CEO, Chris Hall said Rob Tandy’s appointment cements the McGeary family’s commitment to Australian tourism, particularly in the Kimberley where APT operates small group 4WD adventures into remote regions where it has developed close working partnerships with local Aboriginal communities.
“Rob’s appointment strengthens APT’s family-based history and business platform which is the backbone of the company’s progressive and flexible approach to the continually changing tourism market,” he said.
APT’s award for Best Domestic Operator at the recent National Tourism Industry Awards reflects the company’s commitment to the Kimberley, Mr Hall said.
Rob Tandy replaces the retiring Dino Magris who has been an outstanding loyal leader of APT’s presence in central and northern Australia.
Mr Magris retired at the end of July after 30 years service to APT in the region.
