Tourism Minister Bob Kucera today announced Paolo Amaranti would become the new chief executive officer of Rottnest Island.
The appointment follows the State Government’s decision to inject an extra $20million into the renovation of infrastructure and accommodation on the island.
“Paolo was part of the Rottnest Island Taskforce and has helped prepare the blueprint for a sustainable future for the island,” Mr Kucera said.
“Two months ago he was appointed acting chief executive officer at Rottnest after working as an executive director at the Western Australian Tourism Commission.”
Mr Kucera said Mr Amaranti had a strong business strategy approach and a personal management style that earned respect from staff and colleagues.
Mr Amaranti replaces Lesley Smith, who was acting in the position.
