Tourism Fiji chief to head up Visit Sunshine Coast

Current CEO of Tourism Fiji, Matt Stoeckel, will swap one idyllic destination for another at the end of the year following his appointment as CEO of Visit Sunshine Coast, which will take effect from the beginning of 2021.

Stoeckel will take over from Craig Davidson, who has been interim CEO of Visit Sunshine Coast since June 2020.

Prior to taking up his role at Tourism Fiji in 2016, Stoeckel spent two years with Destination NSW, following several years working for the Swire Group and in tourism consultancy roles with TRC Tourism and Hyder Consulting.

In his consultancy roles, he worked with Fiji’s Ministry of Industry, Trade & Tourism to develop the Fiji Tourism Development Plan 2014-2020, which he was then able to put into action as CEO of Tourism Fiji, including rolling out a new brand marketing campaign in 2019.
