25 years worth celebrating

Celebrations are important at the moment and this was recognised by the team at House of Travel Christchurch City thought when they celebrated managing director David Williams’s 25th anniversary as owner operator of HoT Christchurch City. 

HoT Management members Dave Fordyce, Jayne Alldred, Brent Thomas and HoT founder Chris Paulsen zoomed in for the surprise along with other industry friends. 

The team talked about what an inspirational and supportive leader he is; from creating HOT Events 15 years ago to being a game changer in the New Zealand sports travel market with the development of brands like New Zealand Olympic Travel and Tri Travel.) ‘Dave, we just want to say thank you for being an amazing, inspirational boss.  It is a privilege to be part of your team, we are so proud of what you have achieved,’ Hot Christchurch City team member Victoria Wales, said (through tears, champagne and cake).
