Commenting on his appointment at the Scottish Business Resilience Centre (SBRC), Thewlis said: “I was thrilled to be offered the opportunity to shape public good initiatives on a national scale as part of such a well-respected organisation.

“SBRC and GTS are aligned on mission-led values for a safer, more inclusive economy.

“Being able to add value to this goal by sharing my knowledge of the social economy and the impact that it can have through a well-respected voice that is heard across the UK and beyond is something I am very much looking forward to.”

The SBRC is a non-profit organisation which exists to support and help protect Scottish businesses.

Last month it unveiled a number of top-level changes as its chief executive steps down after nine years at the helm.

Mandy Haeburn-Little will continue to lead the threat prevention organisation until August, when her responsibilities will be shared by two other roles.
