HSS appoints Gordon MacRae as new Chief Executive

HSS is delighted to announce the appointment of its new Chief Executive, Gordon MacRae.

Gordon has spent most of his working life in the voluntary sector, campaigning for social justice and human rights. Before joining the Humanist Society Scotland he worked as Head of Public Affairs for Which? in Scotland and before that spent five years as Head of Communications and Policy at Shelter Scotland. He has worked in similar roles at Indigo PR, Scottish Grocers' Federation and Leonard Cheshire Disability. He lives in Peebles with his wife and two children.

We hope that Gordon will be joining us on Monday 13th April.

A spokesperson for HSS said;

“We are delighted that Gordon is joining us. He comes with a wealth of experience, and his particular focus on social justice and human rights will be crucial to the development of the society as we move forward.

“Gordon joins us during a very exciting period of growth, and we’re confident that he will lead the society forward to even more positive developments in future.”
