Movers and Shakers in Corporate Scotland


Scottish Equity Partners (SEP) has expanded its infrastructure team by appointing Adam Delaney as director of finance and Romain Keyen as associate.

Mr Delaney, who is based in SEP’s new Edinburgh office, is responsible for infrastructure fund accounting and assume the role of finance director for its utility infrastructure business, Indigo Pipelines.

He previously worked with both Grant Thornton and Baker Tilly before moving into finance management across infrastructure projects in the healthcare, education and defence sectors.

Mr Keyen is based in SEP’s London office and will focus on new energy infrastructure investments. He previously worked with BNP Paribas Clean Energy and Glennmont Partners, where he was responsible for the acquisition of clean energy assets across Europe.

Calum Paterson, managing partner of SEP said: “We are very pleased to welcome Romain and Adam as key members of our infrastructure team.

“The market for energy finance is very attractive and the strength and depth of our specialist team places us in a strong position to embrace this opportunity.”

Trump Turnberry has made three corporate sales appointments as preparations for the relaunch of the prestigious Ayrshire next summer resort continue.

Paulomi Debnath has joined the resort as an account director and will be based in the London office of the Starwood sales team. Ms Debnath, formerly of The Corinthia Hotel in London, brings 13 years’ experience gained through operators such as Radisson Hotels and Hilton Hotels Worldwide.

Shalane Breen has been appointed as an account executive and joins the resort from Elior, where she was sales manager for corporate and private events.

With a Scotland and Ireland remit, Shalane will engage with local businesses keen to learn about the newfacilities at Trump Turnberry.

The appointments also follow the recent hire of Laura Findlay as business development executive.

Stephen Walker, director of sales and marketing for Trump Turnberry said: “We’re delighted to welcome Paulomi, Shalane and Laura to the team.

“Supporting The Trump Organisation’s multi-million dollar investment in both our existing, and the creation of additional meeting and function space, we recognised at an early stage the requirement to expand the sales force both locally and nationally.”
