The new Chief Executive said: “I am really pleased to join High Life Highland, which has built strong foundations in its first eight years. I look forward to working with the team to lead and support its future growth and continued success in the provision of leisure, culture, and arts – particularly for those who most need support in order to maximise participation in our various activities and services.”
“I am confident that High Life Highland will continue to go from strength to strength. I have been out and about across the whole of the area in my first two weeks and I have been extremely impressed by the energy and commitment of staff and volunteers and the positive focus on delivering outcomes and maximising the opportunities to add value for communities, businesses and visitors to the Highlands.”
Donald McLachlan Chair of High Life Highland said:
“We are delighted to welcome Steve to High Life Highland, his knowledge and skills fit with the aims and objectives of the charity and will support the board and management in taking HLH into its next phase of development as well as assisting in the continuation of building on our positive relationship as a trusted partner in the Highlands”.
