The Chartered Society of Designers in Scotland has appointed Gerrard & Medd principal David Gerrard as the new chairman of its committee, as it considers whether or not to establish a permanent Scottish headquarters.
Munro Cleaners and Klick Photopoint brand manager Adrian Searle takes up the position of secretary, with BigHand principal Derek Watson taking over as treasurer.
The CSD in Scotland is a regional branch of the Chartered Society of Designers, headquartered in London.
Watson says the branch could set up a permanent regional base in the Glasgow Lighthouse later in the year. A decision has yet to be made, he adds.
“Our initial job will be to put a strategy in place to attract a larger membership and we may organise a debate for existing members to air their views on how this can be done,” says Gerrard.
Gerrard adds that he is looking to increase the tenure of the committee’s office from its current length of one year, to give the organisation greater continuity.
