Deputy Director Gordon McInnes retires after 20 years at the EEA

Gordon McInnes retired from the European Environment Agency (EEA) yesterday. He has worked at the EEA and its predecessor, the Commission’s Task Force, since 1992.

Appointed Head of Programme in 1995, he was additionally appointed Deputy Director in 2003. With a background in chemistry, air pollution monitoring and national environmental administration from the UK, one of Gordon's priorities was always close cooperation with European countries and other organisations to provide the best possible information on the environment in Europe. It was therefore also natural that in recent years he headed the Governance and Networks Programme with responsibility for the strategic development of relations with EEA member and cooperating countries as well as EU neighbourhood countries.

The Executive Director and staff of the EEA wish Gordon and his wife Linda all the best in their retirement in Suffolk, England, where he plans to continue to contribute to knowledge-gathering on the environment through one of his hobbies – bird-watching.
