Crabb reaches Rainbow’s End
Crabb joins from Lion, replacing Deere
In a seemingly wildlife themed-interchange, New Zealand attractions firm Rainbow’s End has appointed Karen Crabb as CEO from Lion, following the resignation of Chris Deere in August.
Crabb joins Rainbow’s End from Lion where she has held a number of senior executive roles. Deere had been with Rainbow’s End for just over 15 years, and was CEO since 2007.
Rainbow’s End is a wholly owned subsidiary of Wellington based investment company, Rangatira Limited.
The firm recently won Brass Ring awards at this year’s IAAPA show in Orlando. The park also received a Qualmark Gold Sustainable Tourism Business Award earlier this year.
Operating since 1982, the park employs close to 300 staff and is home to over 20 rides and attractions, including Kidz Kingdom for kids aged eight years and under, the recently added Stratosfear ride, and the new AA Driver’s Town ride (opened in March of this year).
