Many operators will be familiar with Promil as he joined the TCO team from the Alexandra i-SITE Team Leader role last year, and recently he’s helped to deliver Eat.Taste.Central for 2021.
Promil’s task as Operator Capability Support and Engagement is to help Central Otago tourism operators to learn more about how the RTO can support them, and to give guidance on available programmes that can enable their businesses to be better.
Having grown up in India, he also spent time in the Philippines and the US working as a production manager for a documentary film company. Promil came to New Zealand in 2016 where he then gained a post graduate diploma in International Tourism Management from AUT.
Promil loves many things about Central Otago and is someone who likes to explore and be close to nature, be that in the tussock covered high country of Central Otago, in a rain forest, up a mountain or on a remote beach. He loves trying new flavours and delicacies from different cultures – and considers himself a bit of a food, beer and wine buff. He’s been known to encourage some of the TCO team along to join him at yoga classes and is also keen to find a life partner who doesn’t go by the name of ‘Dottie’ (which is the name of a website tool he has had to spend a lot of time working with).
Promil is really looking forward to being out and about engaging with the amazing tourism business operators in Central Otago.
