Oil and gas veteran takes helm at Glencraft

Donald MacKay: too good to turn down

Glencraft, the mattress maker that has supported visually impaired and other under-represented people with dignity through work for 178 years, has appointed oil and gas veteran Donald MacKay as managing director.

Mr MacKay, whose career saw him based in 10 countries, takes up the reins at the Aberdeen-based social enterprise from Graham McWilliam who held the position for six years. Mr McWilliam will be pursuing new business interests after a short break.

Mr MacKay’s career began at Schlumberger and he has held a number of senior positions including vice-president (Europe) at Odfjell Well Services, interim CEO at Morgenstern and CEO at Read Cased Hole. 

He said: “Businesses and the community across Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire have always been tremendous supporters of Glencraft and I look forward to strengthening those relationships.
