Donald Campbell, Sales Director at Inverarity Morton (IM), will take over from Peter Lederer of Diageo, as the new chairman of The Scottish Licensed Trade Association (SLTA) in November.
SLTA President Paul Waterson commented, “We were delighted when Donald accepted our recent invitation to become The SLTA’s 56th Chairman and this will be a very popular choice. He is a man with immense experience in our industry, and is highly respected by all. I know Donald will bring his considerable expertise and enthusiasm to our Association and we thank his company, Inverarity Morton, for their support. I am sure this appointment will be highly beneficial for both parties. We are very much looking forward to working with Donald for the general good of our trade and The SLTA in particular,” he said.
While Donald Campbell said, “My chief priority will be to increase the current membership. The SLTA is a national, not-for-profit organisation that relies solely on support from the trade to function. It’s only as strong as the number of members it retains.”Married with two children, Campbell and his family own and manage two pubs: the Two Chimneys in Uddingston (since 2000), and The Lawburn, Cambuslang (since 2005).
