BIG announces Malcolm McPherson as non-exec chair

BIG has appointed leading lawyer and businessman, Malcolm McPherson, to join its board as non-executive chair.

Mr McPherson is the long-standing senior partner at Edinburgh-based HBJ Gateley, one of the UK’s most successful legal firms, with 10 offices across the UK and an international reach.

He has been a non-executive director of many successful Scottish companies with a particular focus on entrepreneurially-led businesses and corporate affairs advice. Malcolm is also a former chairman of Hibernian Football Club.

BIG director Zoe Ogilvie said: “Malcolm is one of the country’s most experienced and widely respected business figures, and someone we’ve known for many years.

“His track record is impeccable, both at the helm of HBJ Gateley and in non-executive roles with an impressive string of successful high-growth businesses. He’ll bring a valuable and wise perspective to the existing board.

“Not only will Malcolm add strong corporate governance to our board, his experience in establishing HBJ Gateley as a major force across the UK and internationally also mirrors our own ambitions.”

Malcolm McPherson said: “I have watched BIG grow from small beginnings to its current position as one of the UK’s largest independent agencies. 

“It’s a business I have long admired, with a strong and talented team.  Given the obvious determination to continue that growth, it’s an exciting time to come on board and I’m greatly looking forward to playing a role in helping the agency achieve its ambitions.”

Now in its 16th year, BIG has invested heavily in its digital marketing capability and last month opened a new office in Manchester, its second in England and sixth overall.
