THE ICE Executive Secretary for Scotland is to be 54 year old Wylie Cunningham. He will be responsible for running the ICE's operations in Scotland and representing its interests with the new Scottish Parliament.
Cunningham will take up his role on 28 February and will be based at the ICE's new offices at 105 West George Street, Glasgow.
He was previously head of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants in Scotland and has also acted as director of the Road Haulage Association for Scotland.
'I am delighted to be joining the ICE as it enters an exciting new era in Scotland,' Cunningham said. 'My first task will be to build on the very strong membership base in Scotland and increase active member participation in the ICE's local association in Scotland.
'As Executive Secretary I will be able to offer extra support to the associations' committees wherever they need it. Together we can then go on to develop a full dialogue with Members of the Scottish Parliament and the Scottish Executive.'
ICE chief secretary Mike Casebourne said: 'We are very fortunate to have secured the services of a top rate communicator who is well known in Scotland. Under him, the ICE in Scotland will become a voice that will be heard loud and clear.'
