Andrew Mulholland has been appointed as General Manager of Wendy Wu Tours, responsible for Australia and New Zealand.

Managing Director of Wendy Wu Tours Australia, Alan Alcock, will be stepping back from the business in mid-June and handing over the reins to Mulholland.

Well-known Australia-wide, Alcock has served the company diligently for the past 13 years and driven the exponential growth of the brand during this time.

Alcock said it is a positive time in the development of Wendy Wu Tours and “Andrew’s appointment brings the experience and background needed to take us to the next stage of our growth in an ever changing environment.”

Alcock will continue to serve as a non-executive director on its local and global boards and will continue to work full time for Wendy Wu Tours in a capacity for global projects such as developing product, DMC and WWT structure for the future.

Mulholland brings over 25 years of experience to the role, working within retail, wholesale and online travel segments and has had senior roles in New Zealand and Australia.

His most recent positions include Executive General Manager for the NRMA Tourism and Leisure group of companies including Adventure World, Coral Seas, Value Tours and Creative Cruising, as well as Flight Centre New Zealand as Product Nation General Manager.

Taking on this new position, Mulholland says he has regarded WWT as the market leader within the Asian specialist segment for a long time.

“I am looking forward to being a part of the next era of WWT, an era that will be defined by innovation, growth and enhanced customer engagement.   I look forward to connecting with our trade partners to discuss how we can grow business with our highly specialised team of experts and extensive infrastructure across Asia,” Mulholland added.
