UKinbound chief executive Stephen Dowd has announced he is leaving the trade association.
He will stand down on August 31 after overseeing the association’s modernisation and restructuring programme although his replacement is yet to be appointed.
He said: “It has been a great honour to lead UKinbound during a period of significant change and development for both the association and the industry.
“I firmly believe that the changes that we have introduced at UKinbound will provide a lasting and secure basis from which the association can move forward and enhance its standing as the focal point for export tourism in the UK.”
UKinbound chairman Philip Green added: “Stephen has guided the association through an extensive, and sometimes difficult, transformation and has worked tirelessly in our members’ interests.
“We are grateful for his contribution to the association and over the next few months the Board of Directors and I will work closely with Stephen to recruit his replacement and ensure a smooth and orderly transition of responsibilities.”
The recruitment process for Dowd’s replacement is already underway and it is hoped the appointment will be made in July.
