London & Partners, the official promotional agency for London representing tourism, foreign direct investment and higher education, has announced the appointment of its CEO.

Gordon Innes will lead the new agency, launched on 1 April 2011, by bringing together the remits of three separate agencies Visit London, Think London and Study London to create a single vehicle to promote London to visitors, investors and students with one voice.

Commenting on his appointment, Innes said “This is an amazing opportunity and an amazing time to work for London. I am delighted to be joining London & Partners and look forward to working with the Board, Executive team and industry to ensure that London & Partners is in a strong position to harness the opportunities to promote London in the lead up to and beyond the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.”

Commenting on the announcement, Dame Judith Mayhew Jonas, Interim Chair, London & Partners said: “I am delighted to confirm the appointment of Gordon Innes, whose extensive experience in economic development and promotion perfectly compliments the remit of our new agency. I am confident that Gordon will ensure that London & Partners continues to deliver high profile and impactful activity that attracts and delivers value to businesses, students and visitors.”
