KAY MacGregor has clearly used some of her marketing skills on herself, securing the job of managing director at Stirling-based firm Denvir.
She moves from Equator, the largest digital agency in Scotland, where she was client services director.
Denvir said the move was critical to its growth plan, allowing chief executive Suzanne George to focus on the agency’s international expansion, with regional director Jane Maher concentrating on continued success in the North-east.
Energy-focused consultancy Ramboll Oil & Gas UK has appointed its first managing director, hiring civil and structural engineer Tim Martin to oversee operations at the firm’s new UK head office in Aberdeen.
His appointment comes three months after Ramboll acquired Apply Altra as part of an expansion strategy aimed at establishing and growing a presence in the UK market.
A graduate of the University of Aberdeen, Martin has 19 years’ experience in the energy sector, most recently contracted into global oil majors BP and Shell through his own consultancy.
He will report to Ramboll’s headquarters in Denmark.
A move to Scottish property agency Rettie & Co’s farms and estates team will be something of a homecoming to Nick Ainscough, who grew up on a farm in the Borders.
He also brings with him a masters degree in rural estate management and a long list of letters after his name. He qualified as a chartered surveyor at Fisher German in Leicestershire, then took further exams to qualify to become a fellow of the Central Association of Agricultural Valuers in 2012.
Law firm Shepherd & Wedderburn has announced the promotion of four solicitors to associate status.
It said that, “after demonstrating outstanding performance in their practice areas”, corporate share schemes specialist Gavin Charlton, banking lawyer Lucy Hall, and property and infrastructure duo Susan Fergusson and Lauren Thomson have all been promoted.
