Turning Point Scotland is benefiting from a new blend of experience and leadership following the appointment of three new members to the Board of Directors.

Following a high profile recruitment campaign in January there was interest from across the country, from people keen to help take Turning Point Scotland forward.

Alan Rowley joins Turning Point Scotland having held a number of board level roles in services and consultancy companies working in the aerospace, engineering, multi-media, travel, public and central government sectors.

Craig Findlay qualified as a chartered accountant with Deloitte’s in Edinburgh, subsequently pursuing a career in financial management. He has worked across a number of industry sectors, both in the UK and abroad, and has served as Finance Director on the boards of a number of Scottish companies.

Dorothy McElroy is a recently retired health professional. She spent the best part of her 34 year career managing services for people living with life limiting illness and providing support for their families.

As part of their induction the new Board members will be visiting some services over the next couple of months and they have attended their first Board meeting.

Martin Cawley, Chief Executive, Turning Point Scotland said:

“On behalf of everyone at Turning Point Scotland I’m delighted to welcome Alan Rowley, Craig Findlay and Dorothy McElroy to the Board. I know their broad range of skills and experience are going to be a huge asset to the organisation going forward.

Steady financial management and overall governance is hugely important during the current economic crisis, but passion and commitment is equally important if we are all going to make a real difference in the lives of the people we support.”
