New operations appointment at Featherdale Wildlife Park
May 5, 2016

Elanor Investors Group (EIG), owner/operator of Sydney's Featherdale Wildlife Park, has announced the recent appointment of Tony Chiefari as the attraction’s Director of Operations.

Announcing the appointment in a statement, EIG commented “Tony joins Australia’s most iconic native wildlife park at an exciting time, with new ideas and brilliant vision for taking the visitor experience upward and onward.

“With a strong background in the attractions segment, and a fine resume to match, Tony is a vital and welcome addition to Featherdale’s management team.”

Chiefari’s previous experience includes senior roles in national retail chains before spending three years as the General Manger of the Sydney Attractions Group, followed by five years as Commercial Director (ANZ) for Merlin Entertainment Group.

The statement added “all this gives Tony a great range of hands-on experience that is perfect for taking Featherdale Wildlife Park to the next level in delivering on its guest promise.”

Over 11 million people have visited Featherdale Wildlife Park since it opened its gates including over 43,000 school children who have been thrilled and enthralled by the largest collection of native Australian Animals in the world.
