Niall Gibbons has been appointed Head of Tourism at NEOM

 Saturday, June 10, 2023 


NEOM has a new head of tourism. Niall Gibbons has joined the US$500bn project from Tourism Ireland and fills a role that has been empty for over two years, last filled by Andrew McEvoy, who has since returned to Australia.

Gibbons takes on one of the most high-profile positions in the company, leading the giga-roject’s tourism vision, which spans developments such as Sindalah and The Line.

NEOM is expected to help turn tourism into one of KSA’s top economic drivers.

With a career spanning more than 35 years, Gibbons has been spent the entire time in his native Ireland.

His most recent role was CEO of Tourism Ireland, a position he held for 14 years. From 2002 to 2009, he was the company’s director of corporate services.

He is also an honorary fellow of the Irish Hospitality Institute.
