Mulpha Sanctuary Cove has appointed experienced leisure industry professional, Dominic O’Brien to the key role of sales and exhibition manager for the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show (SCIBS), which takes place on 19th to 22nd May 2016.
The appointment comes as respected foundation crew member and former exhibition manager, Harry Davis leaves his position at SCIBS after 27 years spent building the show into one the Gold Coast’s most well-known marine events.
Keith Allardice, executive general manager at a Sanctuary Cove said, “Mr O’Brien’s dynamic client focus and wealth of experience in sales-focused roles within the leisure industries made him the ideal candidate for the position.
“Mulpha is pleased to welcome Dominic to the SCIBS team in this crucial role, where he will liaise between the event’s exhibitors, sponsors and the public as we continue to evolve and build on the success of SCIBS each year.
“Dominic has demonstrated outstanding insight into the aspirations of our target stakeholders, and we look forward to his contribution to SCIBS, an event that has become synonymous with the Sanctuary Cove brand and the international luxury marine lifestyle.”
Already well versed in the Sanctuary Cove lifestyle, Mr O’Brien comes to SCIBS following a management role with the Australian PGA, whose Queensland operations have been based at the Sanctuary Cove Golf and Country Club since 2012. Prior to that, he served as leisure sales manager at RACV Royal Pines Resort on the Gold Coast.
Mr O’Brien commented, “I’m honoured to have been selected to take the helm from Sanctuary Cove identity, Mr Davis, and relished the opportunity to continue to enhance SCIBS’ international reputation.
“It is certainly a big task filling the shoes of Harry, who has been a part of SCIBS since its foundations, and has built the show into what it is today; and equally a big responsibility, given the very proud 27-year history of SCIBS.
“I am passionate in my intention to keep the boat show as an industry leader, ensuring exhibitors and the public continue to find a service-driven and rewarding experience.”
