James Stuart has had an interest in the National Park for many years.
In a personal capacity he has sailed and raced on the lochs in the Park and has also enjoyed walking and running within the hills and mountains.
In a professional context he has worked with the Authority whilst leading two sports governing bodies over recent years (Royal Yachting Association Scotland and Scottish Equestrian Association) and also through being a member on the National Tourism Strategy (Tourism Scotland 2020) Strategic Leadership Group of Scottish Tourism Alliance. He has also recently been appointed as a Board member of the Scottish Sports Association (SSA).
He hopes that his contemporary understanding of sport, recreation, outdoor sports governance and his strategic engagement with the National Tourism Strategy equip him suitably to support the Board.
He is currently the Managing Director of Edinburgh Pharmaceutical Processes, a family owned Contract Research Organisation.
James was appointed to the Board commencing 1 February 2015 for a four year term.
