IMI welcomes new CEO

06 July 2022

We were delighted to announce the appointment of Prof. Gavin Caldwell as our new Chief Executive Officer...

The success of IMI as a hospitality school has always been based on a solid management foundation.

We were delighted to reinforce this recently, with the appointment of two of our longest serving members of staff to senior leadership roles.

With over 20 years of experience at IMI and having served for many of those as a Director, Professor Gavin Caldwell was warmly welcomed as our new Chief Executive Officer (CEO). 

Continuing in this trend, Mr. Gareth Currie – with over 17 years at the school - was promoted to the Academic Dean position, heading IMI’s academic development.

Reacting to his new position, Prof. Caldwell said: “I am absolutely delighted to undertake this key role of CEO and would like to thank IMI’s Board of Directors for providing the opportunity to lead such a great organisation - from its faculty and staff to all our students and alumni. 

“Post-Covid and with the hospitality and tourism industries seeking the best graduates, I am confident that IMI is well positioned to continue to offer the very best educational and student experience. 

“This is only achieved by the hard-working team at IMI as well as all our external colleagues and clients, all of whom I thank sincerely for their continued commitment and support.”

By having such experienced individuals heading our business and academic development, we are confident that our school can continue to raise the bar in terms of student experience and educational quality.

We would like to congratulate both Prof. Caldwell and Mr. Currie on their promotions and wish them all the best in their new roles.
