SATC marketing dude going to Fiji.
Tourism SA marketing boss Brent Hill is heading to Fiji to be the new CEO of Tourism and drinks with little umbrellas in them. He’s been at SATC for about six years, including the last 18 months of Covid shit show, so he’s seen a bit, done a bit, worn a few pocket squares in his time.
As you can probably imagine, tourism everywhere is pretty fucked right now, so it will no doubt be pretty exciting and challenging getting things back up and running if any of us can ever go anywhere ever again. As Tourism Fiji chairperson Andrew Viljoen said, “When border restrictions ease and travel resumes, Fiji will need dynamism and creativity in marketing itself as an attractive, aspirational and safe destination”. With drinks with little umbrellas in them. Except probably not really because by the time we can fly again we’ll be ready to go anywhere the fuck we can and drink as many of those drinks with little umbrellas in them as we can so they could probably run the shittest marketing of all time saying “Hey, you can come here” and it would work a treat. Happy to have helped with that campaign idea by the way, no need for credit when you win more awards.
Erik de Roos who was at places like Clemenger when they still existed, Cummins& Partners when they still existed, and most recently San Remo, (they still exist but let’s hope it’s not a pattern), will be stepping in to Brent’s pocket square, and we would like to take this opportunity to wish both of them all the best, and kiss both their asses just a little in case there’s ever an opportunity to do a bit of work with either of them.
Although after our comment about Clems and Cummins, and using a picture of Brent Hill the actor from School of Rock and a few other things, instead of the actual proper not-the-actor Brent Hill, there’s probably fuck all chance of that, but good luck anyway guys.
