FORMER Scottish Enterprise boss Lena Wilson has added a further boardroom role to her portfolio after being appointed chairman of Chiene + Tait, writes Scott Wright.

Ms Wilson, who ran Scotland’s economic development agency for eight years before stepping down in 2017, will take up the position at the Edinburgh-based accountancy firm on December 2, when she succeeds Gavin Morton.

She will hold the role alongside her board appointments at Royal Bank of Scotland, ScottishPower Renewables, and Intertek, as well as her position as chairman of Scottish start-up Turtle Pack, which makes a swimming aid for young children. Ms Wilson is also a non-executive director of Argentex, a foreign exchange business.

Carol Flockhart, managing partner at C+T, said: “Lena’s appointment as chair is a welcome one.

“It highlights our firm’s ambition, and reflects the significant success and growth we’ve seen in recent years.”

Ms Wilson said: “I relish the opportunity to be joining Chiene + Tait, an independent firm that mixes a strong legacy with an energetic and intelligent focus on the future.”

She added: “I’m very pleased to be coming on board for this next phase of the journey where we will focus on further growth.”
