Mackie succeeds McClelland at hub South West
John McClelland has been succeeded as chairman of hub South West by Willie Mackie, pictured, deputy chairman of Scottish Enterprise.
Mr McClelland’s retirement follows the delivery of more than half a billion pounds’ worth of new community infrastructure in Lanarkshire, Ayrshire and Dumfries and Galloway.
With more than 36 years of financial services experience and a substantial portfolio of executive and non-executive positions, Dr Mackie has played a prominent role in supporting and promoting both national and regional economic development.
“I hope to be able to use my private sector business experience, as well as the relationship-based models I have developed, to work with the hub team in the interests of fostering tangible and sustainable regional economic development,” he said.
