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.”
