English UK appoints new Chief Exec

eddie-byers.jpgLeading English language teaching association English UK has appointed global marketing expert Eddie Byers as its new Chief Executive, reports The PIE (Professionals in International Education) News.

Byers said that he hopes to continue and evolve the work of English UK, particularly with regard to engaging with political structures in the UK and Europe over issues such as student visas.

“This industry already makes a powerful and positive contribution to the UK’s global reputation,” he said. “English UK has played an important role in this over the last decade as a great advocate and support for the sector.”

During that time he dealt with clients such as the UK and Scottish governments, the EU and a range of national agencies.
