The head of Tourism New Zealand has resigned after seven years in the job to take over as chief executive of drinks company Frucor Beverages.

Kevin Bowler will leave Tourism New Zealand at the end of October.

Tourism NZ chairwoman Kerry Prendergast praised him for his work through the Canterbury earthquakes recovery and the success of the 2011 Rugby World Cup and working off the Hobbit films.

He had transformed the body into a high performing, digital-led, integrated marketing communications business with a clear mission and values that are shared by all its staff, she said.
