Mike Dowell, one of the founders of Walkabout operator Intertain which emerged from the pre-pack administration of Regent Inns in 2009, has left the company. Dowell, Intertain’s strategy and business development director, has left to pursue other interests, said an Intertain spokesman. “The strategy work he undertook resulted in some exciting opportunities for the business, including the development of the brand template for investment sites, the development of enhanced customer service through the Disney trials and the work within highlight to define an entertainment brand offering. We would like to thank Mike for the valuable contribution he made to the company and wish him every success for the future,” the spokesman said. Before taking the role at Intertain, Dowell was managing director at Marston’s managed pub brand Pitcher & Piano.
