Scott said: “It is essential that the Chamber not only remains relevant and beneficial to members, we also have a key role in driving the development and prosperity of Scotland’s capital city. Engaging with our members and promoting the Chamber is therefore at the heart of what I’d like to do in my time as president. Edinburgh is a great, prosperous city and the Chamber has a great heritage in supporting its commercial growth. I’m absolutely delighted and honoured to have been made president of Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce.”
