Brett Dungan quits FedhasaOctober 4th, 2011 by Susan Reynard | Categories: government, industry, people, technology, tourism
Brett Dungan, the energetic and outspoken CEO of Fedhasa, ex-hotelier and ongoing force for change in the hospitality industry, has announced that he is stepping down from his duties at Fedhasa as well as other tourism entities in which he is involved.
He will continue to serve the industry through to the end of the year and this will include his involvement in the Imvelo Awards event, which he co-founded in 2002, which takes place in November.
Dungan currently serves on several other boards and associations, including the Tourism Business Council of SA, SA Tourism, Tourism Grading Council of SA, and the Fedhasa Large Group Hotel Committee. He was appointed chairman of Fedhasa National in 2003 and later appointed CEO.
He says: “People think I am Fedhasa, but that is my passion, not my job. Had I not had that support from my e-commerce business, TradeRoot, I could not have been as committed to tourism as I have been. There were always synergies: tourism touches all areas and it made good sense. I have so enjoyed this path and it is an exciting place to be.”
