Former NoW journalist takes comms role at SELECT trade group
Iain Mason: ‘ongoing issues’
Trade body SELECT has named a new Head of Membership and Communications and announced several other key appointments as part of its continuing drive to serve the electrical industry across Scotland.
Former newspaperman Iain Mason will be based out of the association’s head office on the outskirts of Edinburgh.
He has joined from Paisley-based creative agency Connect Communications, where he worked closely with organisation as editor of its magazine. He succeeds Alan Wilson, who earlier this year stepped up to become managing director.
Mr Mason said: “The ongoing issues of payments and regulation are vital for the electrical industry, and ones in which SELECT are closely involved.”
Before working at Connect, Mr Mason was a journalist at The Sun in London and The Scottish News of the World, where he rose to become Deputy Editor.
Mr Wilson said: “Having worked closely together for the past two-and-a-half years, I have come to value his enthusiasm, ideas and attention to detail, and more importantly, his understanding of the industry and the many challenges we all face,” he said.
