Craig has spent over 15 years within the hospitality industry and has certainly seen it all. Craig relocated to Queenstown in New Zealand four years ago, during which time he identified the need for a professionally run Event Company, encompassing not only the event itself, but extending to every aspect of the delegates visit including the very important part of team building and of course comfortable accommodation. That original Event company has now relocated to Australia, re-branded and expanded at the request of past clients to now take in Australia, Canada and the South Pacific Islands as well as New Zealand.
With his vast experience in hotels, conferences and incentives, food and beverage management, Craig brings to Caultrane event organisers a vast level of operational experience at corporate level. Craig most recently sold a majority shareholding in Queenstown's most internationally acclaimed and exclusive restaurant "The Bunker" allowing him to fully commit to the success of Caultrane.
Craig's exceptional organisational skills and his ability to exceed under pressure ensure that the utmost attention to detail is achieved. His out of the box thinking, local and international knowledge and experience, along with his fresh perspective and proven communication skills will ensure that Caultrane will provide you with an outstanding and memorable event.
