The Edinburgh International Conference Centre (EICC) has appointed Stuart Bone as finance director. Bone, who joins from CMS Window Systems, previously worked with EICC CEO Marshall Dallas during a seven-year stint as finance manager at Nuffield Health.

Dallas commented: “Stuart joins our team as we face, in common with the rest of the UK business events industry, the most challenging time in recent history. At the same time, we remain confident about a phased in return of business events over time... Having Stuart on board is a great fit and we look forward to his contributions going forward.”

Bone said: “The organisation has been on a sustainable growth trajectory over the last five years having grown revenues in the corporate and international association markets and whilst this is a challenging time for the events industry. I’m energised to help the EICC team through this difficult period. We hope to welcome business events back to our venue in the near future.”

The announcement comes after Dallas earlier this week won the IoD Scotland Director of the Year - Small to Medium Business” award. The EICC in May launched a new hybrid events model, Make it Edinburgh Live, and in March led an announcement on the go-ahead for the £350 million Haymarket Edinburgh hotel and hotel school development in Edinburgh. The hotel will be operated by the EICC.
