Posted on 22 Apr 2020 by Lucy

The Council of the Cockburn Association congratulates its Director, Terry Levinthal, on his appointment to the Board of Historic Environment Scotland.  The Cabinet Secretary for the Economy, Fair Work and Culture, Ms Fiona Hyslop MSP, announced his appointment on 6 April 2020 following a recruitment process run by the Scottish Government.  Three other appointments were also made.


Jane Ryder, OBE, Chair of Historic Environment Scotland (HES), said; “On behalf of the Board, I am delighted to welcome Terry to the Board of Historic Environment Scotland. The new Board members bring a splendid range of experience and different perspectives, as we had hoped in initiating the recruitment process. They join our well-established Board at an extraordinary time and together I believe we have the right mix of talent, skills, objectivity and commitment, to ensure the effective response to the immediate challenges and the longer-term development of the organisation.”

Professor Cliff Hague, Chairman of the Association said, "Terry is the right person to become a Board member of HES. He has great experience across the historic environment, a field where the voluntary sector plays a vital role. He continues his 'day job' as Director of the Cockburn: our Council have given their approval to his new position, and we have clear procedures to handle any possible conflicts of interest."
