Mills is the first of Visit Britain’s four-strong business tourism team to learn his fate following the organisation’s decision to scrap its events remit in the face of a 34% budget cut.
"It was great to work with so many talented people over the past 15 months and I’m just sorry it has been so short and sweet," Mills said. "I’m looking at some new opportunities going forward, but nothing concrete as yet."
Mills previously worked for the Hong Kong Tourism Board in London as its director for northern Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Before that, he worked at Visit Britain in a number of roles, the most recent of which was regional marketing manager for Europe.
C&IT magazine meanwhile has learned that Nathan Alemany, previously responsible for bid support on major events within Visit Britain, will be offered a new role within the body. The final two members of Mills’ team will discover their future in the coming weeks.
