Regional tourism board VisitAberdeenshire has announced, 28 December 2016, that its chief executive will retire in early 2017.
Steve Harris, who will be 61 in February, will retire at the end of March following more than four years in the role.
Colin Crosby, chairman of VisitAberdeenshire said: “Steve Harris was originally appointed to the role of chief executive of VisitAberdeen in 2012 and he successfully completed the creation of VisitAberdeenshire earlier in 2016. He has been instrumental in delivering a proactive organisation which has established a clear brand for the area, to attract both leisure and business visitors. He will leave behind a successful, high profile and influential organisation and the board and partners thank him for all his efforts.”
The board will begin the recruitment process for a replacement in January 2017.
