Jóhannes Þór Skúlason is Managing Director of the Icelandic Travel Industry Association (SAF), representing companies in all branches of tourism in Iceland. Prior to taking up the post he served as political advisor to the Prime Minister of Iceland and ran a PR consultancy firm. In his role as the PM‘s advisor, Jóhannes visited the Icelandic communities of North Dakota and Manitoba in 2014 and took part in the August the Deuce ceremonies in Mountain as well as Íslendingadagurinn in Gimli. The experience sparked both lasting friendships across the ocean and an interest in strengthening the ties with the Icelandic communities in North America.

He firmly believes that a strong long-term strategy for building sustainable tourism in both rural and urban areas is essential for strengthening overall economic performance and bringing more diverse job opportunities and increased quality of life to local communities. Under his management SAF has placed growing emphasis on sustainability and tourism development in rural areas.
