NFU Scotland has appointed a new group secretary for the north-east.
Stephen Hepburn has joined the union as its senior group secretary for its office at the Thainstone Centre near Inverurie. He will also work as a senior agent for insurer NFU Mutual.
Mr Hepburn, who has more than 30 years’ experience working in the financial sector at Clydesdale Bank, replaces Duncan Low who retired after 38 years in June.
“With a family background in agriculture, this combined role allows me to bring this, along with everything I’ve learned from my career in financial services, together in one place,” said Mr Hepburn.
