Pio’s previous appointments include general manager of South Sea Shipping Ltd and marketing and communications manager of Air Vanuatu. Most recently, he has been secretary of the Vanuatu Tamtam Bubble Taskforce under the leadership of the Vanuatu Prime Minister’s Office, and committee member of the Vanuatu Government’s Tourism Crisis Response and Recovery Advisory.
‘Aviation access will underpin our recovery success,’ says VTO’s chief executive officer, Adela Issachar Aru. ‘Pio will add value in this area in addition to supporting the Tamtam Bubble Taskforce. Vanuatu’s short haul markets of Australia, New Zealand, and New Caledonia will be pivotal in Vanuatu’s economic recovery and for delivering new initiatives under our Vanuatu tourism recovery marketing programmes.’
