Property Stalwart To Step Down in 2016
Scottish commercial property stalwart Angus MacCuish has announced that he will be retiring from his position as managing director of FG Burnett as of 30th April 2016. Mr MacCuish has been with the business for almost 30 years and will remain with FG Burnett as a consultant.
Richard Noble, currently director and head of agency, will take on the role of managing director supported by the executive team of Graeme Watt, David MacLeod and Jonathan Nesbitt, together with the wider FG Burnett team. Ken Matheson will continue as non-executive chairman. Mr Noble has worked with FG Burnett for 18 years and is the current Chair of Aberdeen Inspired (Aberdeen’s City Centre BID).
Mr MacCuish is a respected market expert, originally from Benbecula in the Western Isles, and a well-known face within the Scottish business community. He is also a previous Vice President of the Aberdeen & Grampian Chamber of Commerce, North East area committee member of the Scottish Council of Development and Industry (SCDI), a member of the project team for Glencraft and trustee of Sabhal Mor Ostaig, Scotland’s only college of further and higher education providing courses taught through the medium of Scottish Gaelic.
Angus comments, “I have enjoyed a career spanning almost three decades with FG Burnett, which is testament to the fact that it is an outstanding organisation.
“As I step down in 2016, Richard will continue to drive the expert team at FGB forward, supporting business communities across Scotland with their commercial property needs.”
Richard Noble says, “Although Angus will be missed in the office on a day-today basis, our focus is, and will always be, on the Scottish market place and the future of FG Burnett. This will allow us to continue our provision of in-depth local knowledge and personalised services, which is unrivalled. We will continue to work with our clients to supply the best advice and service that they have come to expect from us. Over the years Angus has been instrumental in forming an expert team and developing and nurturing talent, which is the backbone of our business. I will endeavour to continue this support and am pleased that Angus remains within the business on a consultancy basis.”
