Marketing Guru Joins Glasgow Children's Hospital Charity
We are delighted to announce that the man credited with transforming Glasgow’s image since 2005 has joined the Board of Glasgow Children's Hospital Charity.
Scott Taylor – who was founder and chief executive of Glasgow City Marketing Bureau – is joining the charity as a Trustee.
The 56-year-old spent a decade at the helm of the award-winning company, establishing the iconic People Make Glasgow brand, before moving on to set-up Advance City Marketing.
Having been an ambassador for the charity for more than four years, Scott will use his extensive marketing industry-wide experience to help Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity to grow the number of supporters and donations that help deliver life-changing campaigns.
Scott said: “Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity, which continues the care of Yorkhill Children’s Charity, is making such an important difference to the lives of children and their families across Scotland.
“Since the Royal Hospital for Children in Glasgow opened its doors in 2015 following the move from Yorkhill, Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity has provided more than £15m of charitable funds.
“Children from all across Scotland are being helped with the best possible care, whether it’s from the funding of state-of-the-art medical equipment, providing vital family support services, to supporting world leading research at the forefront of medical advances.
“This is a charity that touches the lives of hundreds of thousands of children, and it’s for Scotland.
“I am privileged to be joining as a Trustee on the Board and help Scotland’s leading healthcare charity, develop the best opportunities for its children.”
Shona Cardle, chief executive of Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity, said: “We are delighted to have attracted someone of Scott’s calibre to our board.
“His experience speaks for itself and will be instrumental in helping to guide Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity on our mission to ensure Scotland’s children receive the best possible care.”
