DQ board election at AGM


Managers of two Wakatipu adventure tourism attractions are vying for a vacant seat on the Destination Queenstown board.

Ziptrek Ecotours general manager Stu Cordelle and Shotover Canyon Swing general manager Matt Hollyer will contest the ‘activities’ sector seat being vacated by DQ chairman Mark Quickfall at next week’s annual general meeting (AGM).

Board member Steve McLean, who is the co-owner of local firm Rilean Construction, is restanding unopposed for his ‘general’ sector seat.

The AGM is at Queenstown’s Rydges hotel next Thursday, starting at 4pm.
