W&J KNOX, the Scot­tish fish farm net man­u­fac­turer, has an­nounced man­age­ment changes, with two key ap­point­ments to the board from within the com­pany’s ex­ist­ing team.

Man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Jim Traynor, who has been with the Kil- birnie based busi­ness since 1979 and suc­cess­fully led a man­age­ment buy­out from Cos­alt plc in 2004, be­comes chair­man and is suc­ceeded as man­ag­ing di­rec­tor by Dave Hutchens, who joined the com­pany in 2008.

Hutchens has worked in the in­dus­try since 1980 and has been tak­ing an in­creas­ing role in the man­age­ment of the busi­ness since the sale of the com­pany’s fi­bres divi­sion in 2013.

Roger De­hany be­comes deputy chair­man and is suc­ceeded by his as­sis­tant for many years, Fin­lay Oman, who be­comes com­mer­cial di­rec­tor.

Jim Bor­rows re­mains in his role as part­time di­rec­tor, shar­ing re­spon­si­bil­ity for fi­nan­cial mat­ters with David Sloan, com­pany sec­re­tary.

Hutchens said: ‘I am look­ing for­ward to this ex­cit­ing new chal­lenge and will con­tinue to de­velop our ex­cel­lent re­la­tion­ship with the Scot­tish aqua­cul­ture sec­tor.

‘I am tak­ing the helm of a well stew­arded, ro­bust busi­ness and I am par­tic­u­larly pleased that I will be able to draw upon the ex­pe­ri­ence and knowl­edge of Jim and Roger in their roles as chair­man and deputy chair­man.’

The man­age­ment changes took ef­fect from Jan­uary 1, 2016.
