Senior Promotions at Douglas Scott with expansion plans overseas

Posted in News on 4 Feb 2019

Following 12 months of growth, we are delighted to announce the appointment of a new Managing Director, with current MD Kathryn Riley, taking up the role of CEO.

Gina Swaim-Rutter, who joined Douglas Scott in November last year, has been promoted to Managing Director as the business looks to international markets for expansion, as well as consolidating our growth in the UK. Jon-Paul Hanrahan has been promoted to Executive Director after 15 years with the business and will spearhead the expansion into international markets. 

Craig Heywood has also received a promotion as he takes on the position of Associate Director, forging further growth of the successful national insurance and personal injury team he has built.

Kathryn Riley, CEO, notes 

As we enter our fifteenth year of business, we’ve got the strongest team we’ve ever had – at every level and across the teams. With Gina’s appointment alongside Jon-Paul and Craig going from strength-to-strength, it felt like the right time to make these promotions which will perfectly position us to achieve our ambitions over the year ahead and beyond. 2019 is set to be a great year and I look forward to announcing new initiatives in coming months.

Managing director, Gina Swaim-Rutter adds:

Douglas Scott is a business that never stands still and I can hardly believe the progress we’ve made in the past three months. I’m confident that the best is yet to come and am relishing the opportunity my new role presents.
