E-Tourism Frontiers, a leading online tourism consultancy specialising in developing digital tourism strategies for global markets, announced its relaunch last week, following the death of its CEO and Founder, Damian Cook, in November last year.
Taking up the role of MD, is Sarah Mathews, a global expert in online tourism with over 30 years of marketing and digital experience. Mathews brings extensive knowledge from over a decade as Director of Media Partnerships across Asia Pacific for TripAdvisor.
Her experience spans working with both corporate entities and internal tourism boards. She was the youngest-ever female Chair of the Pacific Asia Travel Association, and she had a decade-long collaboration with Cook, identifying trends in consumer travel and providing strategic insights to keep the sector connected with travel audiences.
Mathews said: "I am excited and feel a deep sense of responsibility to carry on Cook's legacy, ensuring that businesses and destinations he worked with benefit from the same level of innovation and passion that he embodied."
Elizabeth Cook will be stepping back into the role of Director of Marketing.
