New directors

NEW directors have been appointed to the boards of two subsidiary companies of the £220 million Shetland Charitable Trust.

Local chartered accountant Susan Groat is to chair the trust’s property arm Shetland Leasing and Property Ltd (SLAP).

She is joined on SLAP’s board by Hjaltland Housing Association chief executive Bryan Leask and former charitable trust chairman Bill Manson.

A trust spokesman said: “These appointments will strengthen the company, and enable SLAP to be a modern, commercial business that makes a significant return to the Shetland Charitable Trust.

“This will benefit Shetland Charitable Trust and its beneficiaries for many years to come.”

Meanwhile Shetland Heat, Energy and Power (SHEAP), the trust owned company that runs the successful Lerwick district heating scheme, will now be chaired by Scalloway business consultant Andrew Blackadder.

Also on SHEAP’s board will be chartered accountant Martin Tregonning and the manager of the Tesco supermarket in Lerwick, Paul Clelland.
