Cynthia’s career has spanned financial services, NHS, defence sector and the media.
She was a member of the team which set up Sky Television’s operations in Scotland, where the company grew from fledgling startup to part of a FTSE 20 company within 8 years. She then became HR Director of British Sky Broadcasting Group, based in London.
Cynthia is currently a company Director and co-owner of a company located in West Lothian and the Borders and is well placed to understand the challenges businesses face in the post Covid recovery period coupled with the impact of Brexit. Social justice and the building of an economically successful Independent country are among her key visions for Scotland.
She has had considerable experience of governance in the private sector: as a former Board member of an FE College and as a serving member of the Court of a University.
Cynthia lives in East Lothian with her husband and two adorable dogs. Hobbies are golf and following football.
