Tourism North East this month farewelled two staff members who have each made a significant contribution to the organisation and to the High Country’s tourism marketing and industry development efforts over several years.

Gina Bladon, most recently Strategic Projects Officer and formerly Marketing Manager, has been a huge asset to the team. She will be applying her skills to marketing the Old Beechworth Gaol.

Louise Friend, TNE’s Digital Ninja, has also resigned to take up a position as Digital & Content Manager at Beechworth Honey. Louise has contributed enormously to the success of TNE and the Digi team.
