Main heads to Spain; Reed joins fund manager

Derek MainAfter a decade working in communications in Scotland, Derek Main is moving to Barcelona.

He said the past four years with University of Edinburgh Business School have been “some of the most valuable in my career.

“They’ve built on the excellent grounding I gained from my agency roles with BIG and Citypress and taught me where my real professional passion lies.

“I love learning from bright people and using my skills to translate their complex ideas into accessible stories that resonate with the wider world. Expert and evidence-based opinions have never been more important.

“I’m continuing to work with business and academic clients as a freelance writer, editor and storytelling consultant.”

Sara Reed has made the switch from Aberdeen Standard Investments to Edinburgh-based fund manager Baillie Gifford where she will be focusing on global communications and building a new team.

Michael Scobbie has left the Edinburgh office of the Big Partnership after three years to take up a role as communications manager at the Scottish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
