New recruits to conference
Cazenove and Townsend join scale-up summit
Cazenove Capital, the wealth management company has teamed up with Entrepreneurial Scotland, the growth businesses network which has also signed up new national rugby head coach Gregor Townsend for an event next week.
The blue-chip City institution will become a corporate partner to Entrepreneurial Scotland and will act as lead sponsor at its ES Summit at Gleneagles next week which brings together 300 of Scotland’s business leaders.
It is the second move by Cazenove to back Scottish business growth after it announced last week that it is supporting the EIE17 investor event for technology start-ups, organised by Informatics Ventures.
Gregor Townsend, head coach of the Glasgow Warriors rugby team, who will become head coach of the Scotland national team next month, has joined the list of speakers.
Bob Hair (pictured right)), wealth planning director and head of Cazenove Capital’s Edinburgh Office, said: “Entrepreneurs are fast becoming key drivers of Scotland’s future prosperity. We have been helping entrepreneurs preserve and grow the wealth created through their endeavours for over 200 years.”
Sandy Kennedy, CEO of Entrepreneurial Scotland, added: “We limit our corporate partners to key organisations with a significant presence in the Scottish business community, a track record of backing entrepreneurial leaders and for encouraging business growth, and who can offer distinct value to our members.
“We welcome Cazenove’s expertise, experience and resources to help to fulfil our vision by inspiring and developing Scotland’s entrepreneurial leaders and achieving our ambition of Scotland becoming the most entrepreneurial society in the world.”
