Ogilvie Group, the Stirling-based mini-conglomerate, has promoted two of its divisional directors to the main board.

Ogilvie Communications managing director Alan Greig will develop the group’s IT infrastructure, while Ogilvie Fleet sales and marketing director Nick Hardy will drive promotional activities for the whole business, which also owns a construction company.

Chief executive Duncan Ogilvie said: “These appointments recognise the value of the communications and fleet businesses within the group and their significant success in recent years.”

Corporate partners appointed at MMS

Law firm Maclay Murray & Spens (MMS) has added three partners to its corporate teams in Aberdeen and London.

Andy Lowe, formerly based in Guernsey, will advise financial institutions and renewables clients from the firm’s office in Aberdeen, while restructuring specialist Jonathan Ingram and energy lawyer Guy de Speville join its London office.

Chief executive Chris Smylie said: “Their appointment affirms our commitment to building strong London and Aberdeen practices, both of which are strategically important to MMS’s long-term success.”

Faichney signs up as Adrok director

FORMER Edinburgh Instruments chief executive Alan Faichney has joined technology developer Adrok as a non-executive director.

Faichney left laser-maker Edinburgh Instruments, which was the first spin out from Heriot-Watt University, in February following its sale to Hong Kong-listed Techcomp in a £1.9 million deal.

Gordon Stove, chief executive at Adrok, which uses radio- and micro-waves to detect oil and gas, said: “Appointing Alan is a major coup for us and we are extremely excited about what he will bring to the business.”
