THE BOARD of The Malcolm Group has appointed Alison McGregor as a non-executive director and chair designate.
Alison enjoyed a highly successful career in banking and financial services, latterly as CEO of HSBC in Scotland. She is also a non-executive director of Scottish Power Energy Networks Holdings, the CBI, Fidelity Special Values plc (from January 2020), the Beatson Cancer Charity, co-chair of the Scottish Apprenticeship Advisory Board and is also a board advisor to Glasgow University Adam Smith Business School.
