Scotmid appoints new president and vice president
Cairney succeeds Hollis Smallman who passed away in February 2014. Associated with Scotmid for 41 years, Cairney has been a board member since 1998 and was acting president during Smallman’s illness. He also served as vice president of the society from 2009 to 2013.
Commenting on his appointment Cairney said: “It is a huge honour to become president and to follow in the footsteps of Hollis. He has left a great legacy and I am determined to ensure that this Society continues to go from strength to strength.”
Watson has been associated with Scotmid for 40 years and became a board member in 2001. He was a member of Carluke Co-operative and was elected to serve on Scotmid’s West Area Board in 1986, following the merger between the two societies.
Watson said: “I am delighted that my fellow board members have elected me as vice president to work alongside both them and our new president, Harry Cairney. It is a great responsibility and I look forward to representing this society.”
Established in 1859, Scotmid Co-operative is Scotland’s largest independent co-operative society.
