Brighton’s i360 chief executive steps down

The boss of the i360 viewing platform in Brighton and Hove, UK, has relinquished her position in charge. However, Eleanor Harris has said she will remain a shareholder of the project.

The tourist attraction opened earlier this summer and has already welcomed its 100,000th visitor.

Ms Harris said: "The last 10 years of my life have been devoted to delivering this wonderful world-class tourist attraction.

"This is the longest time I have spent on any project, and I now feel it is time to move back to running my own visitor attraction consulting firm, I-Xperience.

"British Airways i360 has been an amazing attraction to open. High points for me have included assisting with securing planning consent in 2006 and the funding in 2014; and bringing in BA as a sponsor in 2015.

"It was incredible to launch the attraction and to welcome our 100,000th visitor through the door after just a few weeks.

"I have recruited a fantastic team and when I step away I am confident that I will leave the attraction in good hands.”
