SITE ANZ announces new president

The newly elected president replaces Colette Baini who steps down after a two year term.

The Society for Incentive Travel Excellence Australia and New Zealand (SITE ANZ) has elected Nicole Tingey as its new president, replacing Colette Baini who steps down after a two year term.

Tingey is co-owner of Clockwise Consulting and was most recently SITE ANZ VP of Sponsorship, working with other board members to successfully deliver the inaugural SITE ANZ Conference in Sydney in 2022.

She said her decision to nominate for the position of president was due to the passion and energy of her fellow SITE ANZ board members and her unwavering belief in the power of incentive travel as a reward and motivator.

“The SITE ANZ board has invested so much into getting the ANZ Chapter off the ground, running events, supporting member needs, growing our membership base and of course doing all that’s required behind the scenes,” Tingey said.

“It’s a privilege to work alongside them as we go from strength to strength, creating new opportunities for the ANZ incentive industry to gain knowledge, create new connections and think differently about the value of our work.”

Tingey said Baini and Marissa Fernandez had both been inspirational as past presidents that it was an exciting time to be working in the incentive sector post-pandemic.

“While there are challenges around pricing, accessibility and staffing, the demand for incentive travel programs continues to increase. There’s so much business out there for both practitioners and suppliers, and we’re only just seeing the return of international groups to Australia and New Zealand. It’s an exciting time for our industry.

“It’s well documented that companies reap enormous rewards from incentive travel programs, including greater success in recruiting top talent (more important right now than ever before) and managing employee performance. From a supplier perspective, it’s high-yielding business. What’s not to love!”

Tingey’s plans as SITE ANZ president is to deliver a 2023 conference and ramp up education to help build an employment pipeline for the future.

“I also intend to deliver true value to our members – both practitioners and suppliers.”
