Marketing Lancashire – the county’s destination management organisation – says it has had a record year in 2017, with visitor numbers, web visits, membership and events at an all-time high.
To ensure 2018 sees a repeat of the last 12 months’ success, the organisation has recruited Vikki Harris to join the team as Marketing and Partnerships Director, starting the role at the end of January.
Vikki worked most recently at Manchester United where she led on the marketing of several high-profile projects for the club and prior to this, headed up all marketing activity at tourism agency Welcome to Yorkshire, where she played a key role in both the bid to bring the Grand Départ of the Tour de France to Yorkshire and in its delivery. Vikki has also worked for global agency Wunderman, as Brand Services Director based in their offices in Oman.
Commenting on her appointment Vikki said: “I am incredibly excited to be joining the Marketing Lancashire team and showing the world what the county has to offer as a world-class tourist destination from its glorious coastline to its thriving food scene.”
