Brisbane, Australia, June 16, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- RV industry leader Apollo Motorhome Holidays has established an Advisory Board. A number of leading Australian business people have been appointed to the Advisory Board in a move predicted to accelerate Apollo’s already strong global presence in the tourism industry.
Apollo CEO Luke Trouchet said "we are privileged to have such respected and talented business people join our Advisory Board.”
Mr Trouchet said the board is an “integral step in the development of the Apollo Group of Companies,” and that it would provide “external non-biased, specialist, and industry leading direction and strategy to the business.”
He said the Advisory Board is part of a long term strategy to ensure Apollo retains its strong market presence and high operational standards as the company grows.
Inaugural members of the Advisory Board include brothers Luke and Karl Trouchet, owners of Apollo; Brett Heading, Chairman of Partners at McCullough Robertson Lawyers; Chris Rusden, former Chief Operating Officer of THL Rentals; Phil Degenhardt, Principal of software company Platinum Ray Pty Ltd and Adjunct Professor Stephen Lonie, a former Managing Partner of KPMG.
Mr Trouchet said “the Advisory Board reflects Apollo’s ongoing commitment to becoming the Global Solution for RV Rental. Collectively, the Advisory Board members bring with them decades of expertise in their respective fields and will each play an important role in the company's continued growth and development.”
Apollo’s continued growth has defied tourism industry expectations, with several new branches opening in the midst of an industry downturn.
Operating in Australia, New Zealand and the United States of America, the motorhome, campervan and car rental business has developed several brands to service all markets and established a separate RV manufacturing arm, Talvor Motorhomes.
