Andrew Lane

Andrew commenced his formal tourism career in WA at the Perth Convention Bureau in the mid 90's securing MICE business from South East Asia. From there he spent several years at Tourism Australia in Sydney in a range of senior management roles, including a stint in their US office working with key industry wholesalers and distribution partners. After leaving Tourism Australia, Andrew helped establish an online booking platform (V3), heading up their East Coast operations. The platform was involved heavily in trying to expand the online environment to a broader tourism base, including smaller accommodation providers as well as tours, attractions & events. After seven years with V3, Andrew decided to move back to WA and took a brief time out of the tourism industry, establishing a commercial building business that focussed on building key tourism assets, including The Como Hotel, Elizabeth Quay and Crown Towers. Now as General Manager of SeaLink (WA) Andrew is responsible for repositioning Captain Cook Cruises as a key tourism asset for the State, as well as establishing a new service to Rottnest Island (Sealink Rottnest).
