He described himself as “super excited” to take on the new role in January next year where he will be tasked with “managing change, developing business models and ensuring Scottish Rugby continues to be a commercially attractive brand for its partners” while overseeing all of Scottish Rugby’s commercial, ticketing and marketing.
