Miss Johnston is seen as being an important link between the licensed trade and the city council.

She said: "This is an exciting opportunity to make a difference and help develop the hospitality and hotel trade in Aberdeen."

'Better place'

Adrian Watson, chief executive of Aberdeen Inspired, said: "We are delighted to welcome Nicola to the team, she brings a wealth of experience and has demonstrated a very high standard of work and results delivery in previous jobs."

Aberdeen City Council licensing board convener Marie Boulton, added: "We look forward to working closely with Nicola to make Aberdeen's city centre an even better place for people to visit."
