The Asia Scotland Institute today announced the formation of a new Business Advisory Council to expand the Institute’s engagement with the business community in Scotland and internationally.
“The Business Advisory Council will play an important role in the next phase of our growth in reaching a new generation of business leaders and our journey to become a world class institution based in Scotland,” said Roddy Gow, Executive Chairman.
Stewart Langdon, Partner with LeapFrog Investments, has been appointed Chair with a mandate to build the Business Advisory Council and work with the Institute’s core team.
“I am delighted that Stewart has agreed to take on this important volunteer leadership role and I look forward to working with him to help strengthen our partnerships, audience outreach and business programmes,” said Roddy.
Stewart, who is based in Edinburgh, has 13 years’ of experience in investment banking, corporate finance and private equity investing. Prior to joining LeapFrog he worked at Rothschild for six years in London and Dubai.
“It is a privilege to lead this important initiative,” said Stewart. “The Asia Scotland Institute provides outstanding support to business people in this country with programmes that deliver cutting edge insights, guidance and access to the networks that connect Scotland to some of the world’s most exciting markets.
“I have been consistently impressed by the quality of the institute’s programs and the work it does in educating a new generation of leaders on the opportunities that exist in Asia and I much look forward to working with Roddy and his team to expand our reach.”
