Justin Croker will now serve as the new Director of Sales and Marketing at the Shangri-La’s Fijian Resort and Spa in Yanuca Island.

Mr Croker is the second Fijian born person to recently take up a senior executive role at the big resort across a causeway from Viti Levu near Cuvu.

In a release Mr Croker said he looked forward to the challenge and the task ahead of him.

He said: “It was not a difficult decision for me to take on this assignment with such an iconic hotel that has been on this ride with the growth of the tourism industry in Fiji since the very beginning.

“It is also important to me to come back home to where it all started for me and to be able to contribute and give back to the development and growth.

 

Background

Mr Croker has had extensive experience in the tourism industry both in Fiji and Australia in the areas of revenue management, e-commerce and distribution management.

He began his career with Fiji Airways and most recently oversaw more than 28 properties with the Wyndham Hotel Group (South Pacific) based in Australia.

“My key focus will of course be on ensuring that we continue to remain the resort of choice post renovations on the Coral Coast offering an authentic Fijian experience.

“While working on strengthening key partnerships in both Fiji and abroad building on the strong foundations,”Mr Croker said.

The general manager Craig Powell said: “We are delighted that Mr Croker has joined us at a time when we are consolidating plans for the upgrade of our resort and our services.

“It also goes without saying that I am proud that another of our own home grown talent has been appointed to this role.

He said Mr Croker was chosen, from a competitive range of international candidates, to lead the charge for our sales and marketing team.
