Macfarlane Group, the Glasgow-based packaging company, has appointed former head of Deloitte in Scotland James Baird as a non-executive director.

He has also been appointed chairman of the company’s audit committee, succeeding Stuart Paterson who was appointed chairman of the group in September.

Mr Baird previously led the Scotland and Northern Ireland business of Deloitte, before becoming managing partner of its audit & risk advisory division and chief operating officer in Switzerland.

An experienced auditor and advisor who has worked with companies in the UK and Europe across a range of industries, he previously worked for PWC and Rutherford Manson Dowds.

He is an Honorary Professor at Glasgow University’s Adam Smith Business School and a member of the strategy and research advisory committee of the chartered accountancy professional body, ICAS.

Mr Paterson said: “I am confident that James’s extensive experience in the UK and Europe will prove to be a significant asset for Macfarlane Group and, alongside my fellow board members, I welcome him to the Macfarlane Board.”
