Doug Nisbet has taken over from Mark Finnie as Chair of Tomintoul & Glenlivet Development Trust. Mark has been Chair for 2 ½ years and has provided TGDT with stable leadership and support. Vacating the post of Chair Mark said ‘I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my 2 ½ years as chair of TGDT and feel the organisation is in strong position to build on recent successes such as the Skerryvore concert and refurbishment of Tomintoul & Glenlivet Discovery Centre. Doug is the right person to lead the organisation through the next phase including the delivery of the new Community Development Plan 2018 – 2022 and I wish him every success’.

Doug will be familiar with many of you from his association with the church, The Thistledown, Aberlour Rotary Club and Keith to Dufftown Railway. Taking over the role of Chair Doug said ‘there’s enormous potential in our communities and we have some amazing things happening in our area such as the HLF funded Landscape Partnership so I’m really excited to be taking on this challenging role. With the publication of the new Community Development Plan 2018 – 2022 TGDT has a clear direction and priorities and I’m looking forward to the challenges ahead’.
