Who is behind HIT Scotland?

HIT Scotland is guided by a board of Trustees who meet quarterly.  This board is made up of industry leaders who share their regional and professional expertise and are responsible for the strategic direction of the charity.  The board of Trustees has a chair who is rotated every 3 years. 

Under the Trustees are the Committee Chairs who are responsible, with their committees, to deliver a specific event.  These enthusiastic regional volunteers are keen to show their support for the development of their industry.  They help to ensure that our events reflect our brand spirit and values and raise invaluable funds for the scholarship programme.

The Executive Team, led by David Cochrane, work with trustees, committees, sponsors, scholars and everyone in between to help turn the vision into a reality on a day to day basis.
