In their new roles at SIS, Theresa and Brian will be supporting and advising the organisation’s growing portfolio of charities and social enterprises, enabling them to increase their financial sustainability and social impact in communities across Scotland.

Commenting on the new appointments, chief executive of Social Investment Scotland, Alastair Davis, said: “We at SIS are all excited to welcome Theresa and Brian to the team. Both of them have a wealth of experience in the banking sector and are skilled at nurturing organisations to realise and reach their full potential.
