Islands’ Partnership boss to leave in July
The Islands’ Partnership's Executive Director David Jackson will be leaving the organisation in July after four and a half years in the role.
David will take up a new post in Cheltenham, leading the new Destination and Place Marketing Organisation, Marketing Cheltenham.
The IP said in a statement: "During his tenure, David has led the IP to become a respected organisation that has grown in stature and influence, including the development of Scilly’s Destination Management Plan, which continues to provide the route map for securing a sustainable future for the islands’ tourism industry."
Chairman Andrew Sells commented: “It is with huge regret that the IP will be losing David - he has been instrumental in so many good things the IP has delivered in recent years and in building the organisation to where it is today. I will personally be sorry to see him go and would like to put on record my thanks for all his hard work and dedication. I wish him the very best of luck in his new role.”
The statement added: "With the continued commitment from its major partners the Steamship Company, Tresco Estate and the Duchy of Cornwall secured, the Board of the Islands’ Partnership will begin to put succession plans into place when it meets next week in order to ensure maximum continuity. Further details will be announced in due course."
