The CodeClan team continues to grow with the appointment of Linda Scott, as our new Chief Marketing Officer
As Chief Marketing Officer, Linda will be helping CodeClan build its profile across all of our key sectors and make sure we attract more students, more partners and more headlines!
Linda is a business expert. She is the former CEO of West Lothian Chamber of Commerce and current director of the Scottish Chambers of Commerce. That makes her a well-known and highly respected leader within Scotland’s business community, who has helped hundreds of companies to grow, scale and prosper.
While working with the Chamber of Commerce, Linda was instrumental in developing West Lothian’s Developing the Young Workforce skills and training programme (www.dyw.scot), which was so successful, it has gone on to be used as the template for the national solution on behalf of the Scottish Government.
Linda is something of a prodigy when it comes to business. When she was 17 she founded a successful outside/events catering company. Gourmet Events Scotland has since grown to be one of the most prestigious in the country, running and catering events for large organisations and individuals all over Scotland.
Our CEO Melinda, welcomed Linda, saying: “CodeClan has quietly revolutionised the digital skills landscape in Scotland. However, moving forward we need every sector to be aware of who we are and what we do.
“We’re excited to welcome Linda on board as Chief Marketing Officer. Her work with the Chambers of Commerce, on both a local and national level gives her a unique perspective on the challenges faced by companies across Scotland. Her expertise in leadership, extensive business connections and experience in marketing and events ensures that CodeClan can raise its profile on a national basis and is recognised as the invaluable resource it is.”
Linda told us: “CodeClan has a unique value proposition within Scotland’s digital economy. With hundreds of graduates working within hundreds of industry partners, we are directly helping businesses to grow and succeed, which along with skills and digital technology have been great passions throughout my career.
“The challenge of taking CodeClan into the future and helping the organisation to scale geographically, across multiple business sectors and ensuring we can introduce new courses, skills and talent, is one which I couldn’t resist. I’m thrilled to be a part of the CodeClan team and look forward to helping the academy achieve even greater recognition for the amazing work it does.”
Welcome on board Linda.
