SCOTLAND’S leading rural charity, RSABI, has appointed Nina Clancy as its new chief executive. She is currently a regional manager at NFU Scotland where she is in charge of membership and policy within the Lothian and Borders region.
Prior to that, she spent nearly 20 years as an NFU Scotland group secretary and NFU Mutual agent. At home, she is a partner in a small beef and sheep farm near Melrose.
Speaking on her appointment, she said: “My immediate plans will focus on increasing RSABI’s profile, building upon existing contacts and developing a clear marketing and membership campaign so that the charity can further enhance the benefit that it currently delivers.”
The chairman of RSABI, John Kinnaird, said he was absolutely delighted to welcome Clancy to the RSABI team.
“I, and many others within the farming industry, have known Nina for a number of years and know firsthand both the strength of knowledge and passion she has for rural Scotland and all who work within it,” he said.
