Former British Council director to head English UK

English UK, the representative body for state and private sector English language schools, has announced that global marketing expert Eddie Byers, who has held director-level posts at the British Council and VisitScotland, will take over as its Chief Executive later this year.

Mr Byers, who most recently was Managing Director of the British Council's Programme and Projects arm, will work alongside retiring Chief Executive Tony Millns from February before taking over formally at the end of May.

English UK was created in 2004 from the merging of industry bodies Arels and Baselt. Tony Millns, who guided the merger, had been chief executive of Arels for five years, and has led English UK since.
