Stòras Uibhist has announced the resignation of its Chief Executive.
Fraser Quin has only been in post for six months and is said to be leaving by mutual consent.
In a statement issued this afternoon, Stòras Uibhist said Dr Quin is leaving for personal reasons.
Dr Quin said: “I am sorry to announce my resignation from Stòras Uibhist at this time. I have greatly enjoyed my time in South Uist and my contribution to the community company and the islands. I will miss the staff and the many friends I have made in South Uist.”
Angus MacMillan, Chairman of Stòras Uibhist, said: “The board accepts Fraser’s decision to move to other challenges in his business life. The board are extremely grateful for his significant input at a time of transition in Stòras Uibhist. Fraser has shown great energy, drive and vision in taking the community company forward in his time in South Uist”.
Stòras Uibhist is the community land owner of the 93,000 acre estate covering the islands of Eriskay, South Uist, and part of Benbecula.
Dr Quin took over the role of Chief Executive from Huw Francis in July last year. He was previously Chief Executive of the Eric Liddell Centre in Edinburgh.
