#Tanzania Tourism gets new boss – with deep private sector roots


(Posted 07th February 2023)


Damasi Mfugale


The Tanzania Tourism Board is now being headed by a new Executive Director, the first substantive one since the pandemic year 2021, after Damasi Mfugale has been appointed by government.

Damasi is arguably the first such appointee with deep private sector roots, having headed the Hotel Association of Tanzania as Chairman between 2004 to 2014 and since then service as a Board Member, but also being involved in the hospitality industry through his company Peacock Hotels.

On Damasi’s LinkedIn page his ‘About’ information reads as follows:

He holds a Master Degree in International Hospitality and Tourism Management from IMI University and in addition gained Certificates from Cornell and the Galilee Institute in Israel.
ATCNews extends best wishes for success to Damasi in his new appointment.

Your comments are welcome and will receive a response in due course.
