Peter Dodd Steps Down as Commercial Director at Welcome to Yorkshire
Peter Dodd (Welcome to Yorkshire’s commercial director) has taken the decision to leave the organisation with effect from Tuesday 2nd June.
Peter contributed a huge amount to Welcome to Yorkshire over the years with many highlights, including of course, being an instrumental part of the team who brought the Tour de France Grand Départ to Yorkshire in 2014.
Peter has sent the following message:
‘It’s been an absolute privilege to be a part of the Welcome to Yorkshire team for the last 11 years.
I am incredibly proud of everything we have achieved, together with our partners, to raise Yorkshire’s profile to ‘world-class’ status.
The memories I have of iconic events such as the Grand Depart of Tour de France, the five Tour de Yorkshires, the RHS Chelsea Flower Shows and the UCI Road World Championships will stay with me forever.
I am honoured to have worked alongside some of the most talented, dedicated and passionate individuals and I wish the team the very best for the future.
I am now looking forward to the next adventure in life with my family.’
Welcome to Yorkshire has experienced a significant journey over the last decade and Peter has built a valuable network of people who continue to want to work with us as we approach a new dawn.
Everyone connected with the organisation would like to wish Peter and his family the very best of health and success going forward.
