Movers and Shakers in Corporate Scotland






Emery’s a high-flyer

LOGANAIR has appointed Jan Emery as the Scottish airline’s director of charter services.

Ms Emery has joined the Glasgow-based company from Aberdeen International Airport, where she spent more than four years as route development and marketing manager.

In her new role she has been tasked with boosting the airline’s charter work in the oil and gas industry and identifying opportunities in other markets.

Before then she held roles with New York communications giant J Walter Thompson, Moss Advertising and the Hilton Taylor Partnership in her home town of Leicester, and with London-based agency Grey.

Ms Emery joined Space Solutions as a business development and marketing manager when she moved to the north east of Scotland in 2002.

Loganair chief executive Stewart Adams said: “Jan brings with her a unique wealth of skills in a wide range of areas including business development, communications, advertising and marketing.”

Orr goes to Shepherd

Shepherd has appointed chartered building surveyor Alasdair Orr to its expanding building consultancy department in Glasgow.

Mr Orr, who qualified as a chartered surveyor in 2008, worked for local and chartered surveying firms before joining the surveying practice.

He said: “Having gained valuable experience through the provision of building consultancy advice on behalf of an international loss adjuster for some years, I was keen to bring these skills into private practice and am delighted to secure a position at Shepherd at a time when its commercial building surveying department is expanding throughout Scotland.”

Mark Totten, head of building consultancy at Shepherd, said: “Alasdair’s appointment complements and enhances our building consultancy resource in Glasgow and throughout the west of Scotland at a time when demand for our expert advice in this specialist area is particularly buoyant.”

Moore on the move

Morisons Solicitors has hired Victoria Moore as an associate within its business team.

Ms Moore, who has joined from Brodies, specialises in intellectual property (IP), technology and commercial contracts.

Qualified on both sides of the border, her career includes a spell as an in-house lawyer with a global ISP, Scottish drinks manufacturer and an international aerospace contractor. Ms Moore has also worked in private practice with Bird & Bird in London, and originally trained with MMS.

Morisons’ managing Peter Duff said: “Victoria has experience in particular areas which will strengthen our offering in the team and we are delighted to welcome her.”

Ms Moore said: “Having worked with some fantastic lawyers over the years and learning from some of the best in the industry, I am delighted to be joining Morisons at an exciting time for this growing business and providing them with a complimentary skillset.”
