Appointment marks new era for Otium Planning Group
August 28, 2018

The Otium Planning Group has announce the appointment of Bruce Mackay to head up its new Operational Management Support and Advisory Services unit in a move it describes as marking a “new era” for the leading consultancy.

Regarded as one of Australia’s leading aquatics and recreation industry facility managers, Mackay has been Chief Executive of both Western Leisure Services, incorporating AquaPulse and Eagle Stadium, and Peninsula Leisure, incorporating the Peninsula Aquatic Recreation Centre (PARC).

Otium’s new Operational Management Support and Advisory Services will provide facility owners and managers with practical support via operational reviews and scorecards, personalised coaching and mentoring, governance and management advice.

This support will assist venues to maximise their return on capital and operational investment, usage and overall viability. Stay tuned for more information in the coming weeks.

Mackay will commence in his new role in late October.
