tourism survey data. Furthermore I undertake analyses based on comprehensive
sets of register data. I was born in 1958 and hold the following degrees: B.Sc.(Economics), B.Com.(Marketing), MBA, PhD (Marketing) and
have written a number of scientific journal articles plus many conference
papers and several major reports. I have taught courses in marketing and
related subjects. Occasionally I act as a reviewer of manuscripts for tourism
