UKinbound has welcomed the appointment of Steve Ridgway CBE as BTA (VisitBritain/VisitEngland) Board chairman and Denis Wormwell as chairman of the VisitEngland Advisory Board.
UKinbound’s chief executive officer, Deirdre Wells OBE said: “We look forward to working with Steve Ridgway and Denis Wormwell, who will bring with them a wealth of tourism experience to their new roles. With Brexit negotiations on the horizon, it’s imperative we have robust leadership, ensuring the continued growth and development of the leisure and business inbound tourism sector. I am confident that both will provide this and that they will work effortlessly to develop and implement the VisitEngland Action Plan.
“Their predecessors Christopher Rodrigues, BTA Board chairman and Lady Penny Cobham, chairman of the VisitEngland Advisory Board have made invaluable contributions to the tourism sector and I am sure this will continue with these new appointments.”
