Congratulations to Hassle-free Tours
Posted on: November 26, 2012
Mark Gilbert, the managing director and co-owner of Hassle-free Tours, refused to be beaten by the Christchurch Earthquakes and the subsequent visitor downturn. His leadership, entrepreneurial flair and business capability has been a beacon in a difficult tourism market in Canterbury.
Now Mark has been recognised for his commitment to building a world-class tourism business guiding international and domestic guests into New Zealand’s beautiful backcountry in purpose-built vehicles as well as Christchurch city tours in New Zealand’s only open top double decker bus.
At the recent Tourism Industry Association Summit, Prime Minister and Tourism Minister John Key announced that Mark had won the 2012 PATA Young Tourism Entrepreneur Award, which comes with a cash prize and a business scholarship.
Beck & Caul is proud to be associated with Mark and his company, in assisting the tourism industry recover and thrive after the setbacks of the earthquakes and global downturn.
Well done, Mark.
