Wingecarribee Shire Council has today appointed Jan Campbell as Coordinator of Economic Development and Izabella Lane as Coordinator of Tourism.

The announcement was made by Wingecarribee Shire General Manager, Ann Prendergast.

“Jan and Izabella’s appointments are the next step in our Shire capitalising on the enormous business opportunities we believe the Southern Highlands has to offer,” she said.

Ms Campbell takes on the Economic Development role following years of experience in similar positions at a number of Sydney Councils.  Likewise Ms Lane comes with a strong background in tourism management having coordinated many of the Shire’s high-profile tourism campaigns and events.

The announcements come on the back of the recent merger of Council’s Tourism and Economic Development portfolios whereby Group Manager Steve Rosa took the reins of both departments.

“Both Jan and Izabella will work closely with Steve at the Southern Highlands Welcome Centre in Mittagong,” Ms Prendergast said.

“It’s here that they’ll centre their ‘concierge’ business and visitor model designed to showcase just why the Southern Highlands is the ideal destination to live, work, invest and visit.”

“I encourage anyone considering either visiting, relocating or wishing to seek advice on local industry and business opportunities to book an appointment with the team to discuss how they can assist.”

The Southern Highlands Welcome Centre is located at 62-70 Main Street, Mittagong.
