Return to About Us

Alan is our man in the van! Our face behind the wheel of our brochure distribution service…

With a background in tourism as a former tour operator, as our merchandiser, Alan is passionate about being out and about promoting all there is to see and do in Taupo, Rotorua and the Bay of Plenty. If you’re a client on our Taupo brochure service, he makes sure your brochure is present on all the brochure racks in our local accommodation circuit.

In his spare time, walking beaches, running trails, and climbing mountains is Alan’s version of relaxing. The rest of his time is spent ‘taming’ and maintaining his 2 acre property in the hills above Acacia Bay.
