QMS announces new chief executive #sheep365 #beefgb

Quality Meat Scotland (QMS) has announced Alan Clarke as its new chief executive.

 

Current chief executive Uel Morton announced in January he would step down in July after 11 years in the role.

 

Mr Clarke has been chief executive of Scottish Bakers for six years and has overseen the establishment of the first Scottish Bakers Export Group and increased membership by 22 per cent.

 

He has also been director of Lifelong Learning UK and was chief executive of a Sector Training Council in Northern Ireland for ten years.

 

He also has an MBA and post-graduate diplomas in management studies and personnel management.

 

Robust

 

Jim McLaren, chairman of QMS, said the appointment followed a robust recruitment process.

 

“We look forward to welcoming Alan on board this summer. He brings with him a wealth of experience, in both the private and public sectors, and a strong skillset including governance, finance, project management, people management and IT skills,” he said.

 

“His background also includes a strong commercial focus and a valuable track record of building lasting professional business relationships at senior level with funders including Government agencies, customers and other key stakeholders.”

 

Mr McLaren also thanked Mr Morton for his ‘huge contribution’ over the past decade and said he would leave the organisation in a very strong position moving forward.
