A NEW management consultant with extensive experience has been appointed at Fantasy Island.

The amusement park appointed Craig Smith to the post at its Ingoldmells site recently.

Prior to taking up the post Mr Smith had previously worked as general manager at the Winter Gardens and Opera House in Blackpool.

He has also held posts at The Nightclub Co (UK) Ltd and First Leisure Ltd as director.

Laurence Davis, chairman, said: “I am very pleased to have someone with Craig’s experience on board.

“He will be paying special attention to the sales and marketing of the 41 acre site and we are all looking forward to working with him this season.

“He brings with him many fresh as well as tried and tested ideas.”

Craig will be involved with the development of the site and the launch of the new soft play adventure centre, which will be located in the Pyramid building at Fantasy Island, for early June.

He will also be heading up the events team, who are organising major events for The Diamond Jubilee and Olympics amongst others.
