Architecture and Design Scotland (A&DS) has retained Trevor Muir OBE as the organisation’s Interim Chief Executive, to drive through the changes needed to make A&DS an Executive NDPB by March 2010. Trevor Muir was Chief Executive of Midlothian Council from 1996 to 2009 and held several positions with Glasgow and Aberdeen prior to this.
A spokesman for A&DS said today that:
The recent Government review of A&DS sets out the clear objectives for the organisation as we move from being an advisory organisation to an Executive one. Trevor Muir will be working to shape the organisation to ensure that the changes that are needed to make A&DS a more effective organisation are driven through.
This restructuring of A&DS will help us play a fuller role in helping to create places that work, which provide people with real choices and are ultimately places where people want to be.
