Marketing Birmingham chief pays tribute to Dave Hodgson
Neil Rami, the chief executive of Marketing Birmingham, has paid tribute to former colleague Dave Hodgson who died on New Year's Eve.
Hodgson, who was marketing director at the organisation before taking on a new role in Dubai, lost his battle with cancer aged just 41.
“Dave was a charismatic character and lived life to the full," Rami said.
"He was an excellent marketeer, a committed manager and played a major role in developing the city’s reputation as a visitor destination. His move to Dubai demonstrated his undoubted skills and ambition. Our thoughts are very much with his family at this time."
