Partner on the Hill
THE property practice of Glasgow-based Hill Brown Solicitors has promoted senior associate Aileen Thomson to partner.
Ms Thomson joined the firm in 2006 and has acted for a number of clients, including developers in commercial/mixed retail developments, licensed premises and general property clients.
She and colleague Peter Lawson will run the general commercial and domestic conveyancing department, and she will still assist partner Graham Davidson in private client matters.
Ms Thomson said: "Joining Hill Brown following a number of years involved in property law has been a fantastic opportunity for me."
Kennett for Dalriada
DALRIADA, the independent trustee firm, has recruited Adrian Kennett as head of practice for its ongoing trusteeship business. The director-level appointment comes amid a period of growth for the Glasgow-based firm, which provides pension scheme trustee services to UK companies.
With Mr Kennett based in Bristol, his appointment will give Dalriada a presence in the south-west of England, alongside offices in London, Belfast and Glasgow.
Mr Kennett spent nearly 15 years with Jardine Lloyd Thompson as a director responsible for the provision of actuarial, consulting and administration services.
At Dalriada, a sister company of Spence and Partners, his initial focus will be on a new trusteeship.
No glass ceiling
A NEW general manager has been appointed at The Glasshouse in Edinburgh, four months after the 65-bedroom hotel relaunched under Marriott International's Autograph Collection.
Federico Ciampi brings more than 10 years' experience in the hospitality industry.
Mr Ciampi moved to London from Turin in 2005 and began his career as a front of house manager at hotels including the Thistle Euston. He became assistant general manager at The Academy in London in June 2011. Six months later he became general manager.
Mr Ciampi said: "The Glasshouse is a unique property which has impressed its guests for a decade so I am looking forward to working with a great team to showcase everything it has to offer."
ANNE Clyde has been appointed regional manager for Scotland and the North of England for UK Steel Enterprise, the business-support subsidiary of Tata Steel.
Ms Clyde, who has been at UKSE for 20 years, will have responsibility for Glasgow, Lanarkshire, Ayrshire, Tees Valley, Derwentside and West Cumbria. UKSE was set up about 30 years ago to support the economic regeneration of areas affected by changes in the steel industry.
In her role as area manager for Scotland, she oversaw growth in UKSE's support for businesses in Scotland. Investment made by the firm now stands at more than £22 million. Ms Clyde said: "As someone who was born and bred in Lanarkshire and who followed the apprenticeship route into a business career, it has been a great privilege and honour to be part of the regeneration effort in steel areas of Scotland over the past 20 years."
