TNE is pleased to announce the appointments of three staff to key positions on the team.

Matt White – Marketing Manager.
Replacing Susannah Doyle in the role, Matt brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to TNE having recently returned to Australia from the US where he most worked as the Vice President of Client Services at global marketing agency GMR in San Francisco. He’s held a range of positions in the cycling industry, including Head of Marketing and Business Operations for cycling retailer/importer Above Category Cycling, and Director at Rubber Side Down Cycling, which means he’s well positioned to drive growth in the region’s cycle tourism markets. He worked at the NSW Department of Premier and Cabinet and also as a ski instructor and instructor examiner at Hotham and Buller, so has a great understanding of the landscapes in which TNE operates.

Julie Bent – Administration Coordinator.
Julie joins TNE on 17 July, bringing to the role more than 20 years’ experience across a range of sectors. She is currently working as the Administration Manager for Home Support Services in South Australia, so will soon be making the move over to the High Country to join the team in Beechworth.

Sue Couttie - PR Manager.
After a year as acting PR manager during Sally Brown’s maternity leave, Sue has been appointed to the role on an ongoing basis. She brings to TNE many years’ experience as a freelance and in-house publicity manager, writer and media specialist for a range of organisations and industries including the Melbourne International Arts Festival, Sydney 2000 Olympic Games, Tasmania’s biennial international arts festival Ten Days on the Island, Melbourne Writers’ Festival, Network Ten and regionally for the opening of MAMA in Albury and for Indigo Shire Council’s tourism office.
