Andrew Wilson has rejoined the board of Motherwell Football Club as a director.
Andrew is a well-known figure in business and public life as an economist, former politician and communications strategist.
An elected member of the first Scottish Parliament in 1999, he served as a shadow minister across various departments before joining RBS in 2003 in a number of roles, including as deputy chief economist and head of group communications.
Wilson, who was previously on the board between 2010 and 2015 and was a key player in the creation of the ‘Well Society, is now a founding partner of strategic communications firm Charlotte Street Partners.
Chairman Jim McMahon said: “We conducted a review into the skill set and the make up of the board and Andrew is an excellent candidate to rejoin.
“He is experienced in both the public and private sector and is extremely well respected and connected. I am delighted we’ve managed to add someone of his standing.
“We will continue to review the position with the Supervisory and ‘Well Society boards around further integration of directors, following some of our recent objectives being achieved.”
Andrew will join chairman Jim McMahon, vice chair Douglas Dickie, chief executive Alan Burrows and Tom Feely on the board at Fir Park.
“It is a privilege for me to play a part in helping my club succeed and grow,” he said of his appointment.
“Motherwell FC’s purpose is extremely important to its community and it is a source of great joy and improvement for many people.
“We have ambitious plans to continue its success and I rejoin at a time when I don’t think the club has been better stewarded.
“We have a tough crisis to navigate and must play an active part in getting our community and the country through it.”
