CEO of HISEZ (Scotland)
Brian is CEO of HISEZ – a title we occasionally need to remind him to use. It’s primarily thanks to Brian’s leadership that HISEZ has grown and become a valued contributor to the enterprising third sector.
Brian’s main role is engagement and communication with various stakeholders working in the sector and the delivery of business advice and business skills workshops. He has significant skills in crisis management, particularly for groups encountering trading difficulties, and helping boards develop and strengthen.
He previously worked with HIE as its business starts manager and, before that, worked in the private sector where he successfully set up and ran a business. Until recently Brian was a board member of Social Enterprise Scotland.
