Meet Lexi Stockman, Wentworth Shire Council’s Manager Tourism and Promotion.
After growing up in Loxton in South Australia’s Riverland for most of her life, Lexi moved to Mildura around eight years ago after completing her university degree in Adelaide.
Since then her career has mostly been spent at Mildura Central Shopping Centre as the Retail Marketing Manager from 2016 to 2021 followed by a short stint in Event Management.
Lexi said working for many years to create Mildura Central into an ideal destination for people to meet, shop and dine has given her the skills and expertise necessary to assist in evolving the Wentworth Shire into a top destination for locals and tourists.
“My aim within my new role of Manager Tourism and Promotion is to work with the local communities to create opportunities for tourism, focus on completing our upcoming major projects and ensuring they are successfully marketed to potential tourists to increase economic growth in the region,” she said.
“I’m very passionate about tourism and travel and I’m always looking out for new ideas to put into play as a point of difference for our region. “
Lexi believes Wentworth Shire can become an ideal destination in itself, catering for all walks of life from single travellers to families to retirees.
“This will be achieved by promoting and preserving our beautiful natural attractions, hosting various events and continuing to bring new and exciting projects to life,” Lexi said.
“I’m very excited to be on board and can’t wait to see what the future holds for tourism in the Shire within the next few years and beyond.”
Council continues to recruit personnel to fill the vacancies within the approved structure adopted by Council in February 2020.
