GORDON Smith has been appointed VisitScotland’s new destination development director for the South of Scotland.

He will be responsible for leading on the continued recovery of the tourism industry locally.

Gordon, who has worked in tourism for 26 years, said: “I look forward to taking up this role at an exciting time for the South of Scotland. The region received global recognition from its inclusion on Lonely Planet’s Best in Travel Guide 2023 and as we countdown to hosting key events as part of the UCI Cycling World Championships and the opening of the coast-to-coast cycle route, we will build on the important partnerships we have in place in the South of Scotland to drive forward tourism recovery and continue to strengthen the economy of the south.”
