Cre­ative Scot­land ap­points new boss

The Press and Journal (Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire) - - BUSINESS -

Iain Munro has been ap­pointed chief ex­ec­u­tive of Cre­ative Scot­land and will get to work im­me­di­ately.

Al­ready act­ing chief ex­ec­u­tive, Mr Munro was the suc­cess­ful can­di­date in a com­pet­i­tive re­cruit­ment process which in­volved a global search and at­tracted more than 200 ap­pli­ca­tions.

He had been in the act­ing role since July last year and led a pro­gramme which the or­gan­i­sa­tion said over­hauled Cre­ative Scot­land’s cul­ture, work­ing prac­tices and fund­ing ap­proach.

It has also de­liv­ered some key devel­op­ments such as the launch of Screen Scot­land, a part­ner­ship ded­i­cated to sup­port­ing all as­pects of Scot­land’s screen sec­tor.
