“My decision to resign from my position as Chief Executive of the Scottish National Investment Bank was a difficult decision to make but ultimately it was made for personal reasons. I am extremely proud of everything I achieved while I was the Bank’s Chief Executive, including: launching a bank in the midst of a global pandemic while working remotely; setting its investment strategy; and, establishing its investment portfolio. I am of course, most proud of the incredible team of talented individuals that the Bank now has in place, all bound by a common purpose to deliver investment to businesses and projects connected to Scotland to support the Bank’s missions. It was a privilege to be given the challenge of launching the Scottish National Investment Bank and being its inaugural Chief Executive and I wish the team I have built all the best for the future. I am considering a number of opportunities and looking forward to spending some more time with my young family in the meantime.”
