Anyone know what’s happened to Tour de France Festival Director Maria Bota?
Appointed by the county’s official tourism agency Welcome to Yorkshire in June, she took up the 12-month, £55k contract at the beginning of August, but was nowhere to be seen when details of the cultural festival’s 100-day programme were announced at the end of January.
It emerges from the LinkedIn profile of Ms Bota – who ran an international arts festival in Salisbury for five years before heading for Yorkshire – that she left the job before the New Year, since when she has been working as a consultant.
Bit odd, eh?
Still, before she left she’ll have played her part in putting together some fun stuff for the 100 days (details here).
So cheers for that.
