'Synergy between organisations'
Donnelly joins Edinburgh Chamber board
The Glaswegian is credited with turning around the agency in recent years and playing a key role in advancing Edinburgh’s place in overseas markets.
Scott Black, president of Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce, said: “Under John’s leadership Marketing Edinburgh has really made a significant impact for Edinburgh, particularly in international markets.”
Mr Donnelly said: “I am delighted to be joining the Chamber’s Council. There is a great synergy between our organisations.
“Across the city, there is a sense at the moment that its organisations, businesses and the public sector are increasingly working together, genuinely collaborating and aligning themselves to common goals.
“The launch of the ‘2050 Edinburgh City Vision’ consultation last week, for example, is an incredible and unique opportunity for businesses, and residents, to help shape the future of our city. It’s a very exciting time for Edinburgh.”
