Meet Chris.

Chris is VisitAberdeenshire’s Chief Executive. He works across all areas of the business and with stakeholders and partners in the region and across the country. Drawing from nearly 30 years’ experience in diverse roles across the tourism sector, Chris is focussed on delivering the best possible outcomes from VisitAberdeenshire’s resources for the benefit of the local tourism industry.

Here’s three things you may not know about Chris.

  • His favourite part of his job is listening to the people who are making a difference to the livelihoods of our businesses and the lives of our visitors.
  • Chris has swapped cycling in and out of central London for cycling around the far more relaxing roads of Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire
  • Despite a lifetime of disappointment, he still believes that one day England’s men will win a major international football tournament.
