Interim Chief Executive Officer appointed
The South Australian Tourism Commission has announced today that Stephanie Rozokos has been appointed as the agency’s interim Chief Executive Officer.
SATC Board chair Andrew Bullock said that Mrs Rozokos had been endorsed as the CEO while a global recruitment process takes place.
Mrs Rozokos – who has acted in the role in the past and is the SATC's Chief Financial Officer – has been with the SATC since 2010, leading the agency’s finance, contracts, procurement, risk management, human resources, and information communications technology functions.
With significant experience in tourism, business management and corporate services, Mrs Rozokos is a fully qualified Certified Practicing Accountant (CPA), graduate of the Australian Institute of Company Directors, and she is also the Deputy Board President of Resthaven Incorporated.
“We are extremely fortunate to have someone of Stephanie’s calibre already working within the SATC and who is available to step up as interim CEO while the recruitment process is underway,” Mr Bullock said.
“Stephanie has terrific credentials and knows the tourism sector extremely well, which ensures the transition will be smooth, and the industry can expect very much business as usual from the SATC."
Mrs Rozokos said she was looking forward to the expanded role, and to leading the agency through the coming months.
“I’ve worked closely with all of the SATC’s business groups over many years and understand how important our role is in driving the visitor economy, so I am determined to keep looking forward, growing the sector and keeping South Australia top of mind for tourism, business and events,” she said.
