Interim Chair Of Welcome To Yorkshire Stands Down

The Interim Chair of Welcome to Yorkshire has stood down from his role.

Keith Stewart said:

"Now that the North and West Yorkshire Business Rates Pool has made the decision to invest £1m into Welcome to Yorkshire I am standing down as Interim Chair, and as a director after 5 and a half years’ service.

My priority as Chair has been to ensure the survival of Welcome to Yorkshire which has achieved amazing things in its 10-year life. It is now in a position to plan for its future.

I am proud of the progress we have made since April when I took over an organisation in shock following the resignation of the CEO and previous Chair.

We focused on rebuilding trust internally and externally, commissioned the independent investigations then commenced implementing their recommendations, started the search for a new CEO which is progressing well, managed cash and expenditure tightly and improved governance.

During this challenging time our hardworking team has delivered a huge number of events large and small to our usual high standard.

I am also enormously grateful to my colleagues on the board for giving me and the team their support. Lesser people would have walked away - these are voluntary posts after all - but each of them worked hard to ensure Welcome to Yorkshire has a future. We are all excited about Welcome to Yorkshire’s future prospects and wish the team well."
