Scottish Renewables has appointed Claire Mack as its new Chief Executive Officer.
Prior to joining Scottish Council for Development and Industry (SCDI), where she is currently Director of Policy and Place, Mack spent 12 years at Ofcom, the communications regulator in the UK.
Mack will be taking over from Niall Stuart, who announced his intention to step down earlier this year.
Patricia Hawthorn, Chairman of Scottish Renewables, said: “Claire showed a real energy and a clear vision for our organization and the sectors we are here to represent throughout the recruitment process. We are looking forward to working with Claire and the wider team at this time of both major challenges and opportunities for Scotland’s renewable energy sector.”
Commenting on her appointment, Mack said: “The role of the sector in driving wider economic growth in Scotland is evident and the opportunity to build on the expertise in innovation already here is very exciting. I’m looking forward to helping to secure the best possible environment for the industry to thrive in.”
Scottish Renewables is a member organization dedicated to strengthening business relationships, and exploiting Scotland’s abundant natural resources to secure a future that will deliver on jobs, investment, energy security and climate change.
