Lindsay Wake

Responsible finance provider, Social Investment Scotland (SIS), has appointed three new members to its commercial team, following continued growth in customer lending.

Lindsay Wake joins the organisation as business support and development manager, bringing with her 16 years of supporting and advising social enterprises, community organisations, businesses and charities. Most recently, she held community investment roles with major affordable housing providers, where she developed community investment, capacity building and social value activities and initiatives. In her new role, Lindsay will manage and develop SIS’ business support activities.

Stephanie Smith and Louise Vaughan have also been appointed as marketing and communications manager and events manager, respectively.

SIS said Ms Smith brings with her experience of devising integrated marketing solutions specifically for Scottish SMEs. Stephanie will now develop and deliver SIS’ proposition to stakeholders while Louise will oversee the business’ extensive events programme.

Chief executive of Social Investment Scotland, Alastair Davis, said: “The team at SIS are delighted to welcome onboard Lindsay, Stephanie and Louise. We have ambitious plans to continue growing our offering to the third sector across Scotland and our new hires will each play a key role in helping us to reach and engage with organisations that might not be aware of the support and help that is currently available to them.

“We are all looking forward to working with them and benefiting from their expertise as we look to continue building our offering for Scotland’s charities and social enterprises.”

The appointments follow three other key hires in 2018 including the appointment of Ken Barclay as vice-chair and two new investment managers.
