- Clydesdale Bank plc · Dundee · Dundee Heritage Trust

The for­mer chair­man of the Cly­des­dale Bank is to take over at the helm of Dundee Her­itage Trust.

Dundee-born Jim Pet­ti­grew, who re­cently re­tired from the bank, will take over in Oc­to­ber.

He will suc­ceed Andy Loth­ian, who is to step down af­ter 11 years at the char­ity, which looks af­ter RRS Dis­cov­ery and Ver­dant Works.

Mr Pet­ti­grew said:“what the team at Dundee Her­itage Trust have cre­ated at both Dis­cov­ery Point and Ver­dant Works is amaz­ing.

“It’s in­cred­i­ble that such a small in­de­pen­dent char­ity now runs two five-star rated fully-ac­cred­ited mu­se­ums, holds col­lec­tions of recog­nised na­tional and in­ter­na­tional sig­nif­i­cance and con­sis­tently achieves such high cus­tomer rank­ings.

“I’m hon­oured and hum­bled to have been of­fered the role and very much look for­ward to work­ing with the team on the next part of their jour­ney.”

Mr Loth­ian, who will con­tinue his in­volve­ment with the trust, said: “It has been a real priv­i­lege to work with the team at Dundee Her­itage Trust and I am de­lighted at the op­por­tu­nity to con­trib­ute fur­ther through the warm re­la­tion­ships es­tab­lished be­yond my for­mal ten­ure as chair­man.”
