School for CEOs Faculty: from Independence to accolades
The focus is on Scotland this week as we share updates from the CEO of Alliance Trust ltd and former Chairman of Gleneagles luxury resort.
- Katherine Garrett-Cox CBE, CEO of Alliance Trust ltd, commented on the continuing impact of last year's Independence referendum in Scotland. According the Katherine, there is a period of uncertainty spreading across businesses in Scotland as the debate over devolution continues. This is not in the best interests of either the economy or business.
- Meanwhile, friend and Faculty member Peter Lederer has been awarded the Scottish Thistle, the top accolade in the Scottish tourism industry. This comes as no surprise as he recently retired after 7 years as Chairman at Gleneagles, luxury resort and host venue to the most recent Ryder Cup golf tournament. Congratulations Peter!
