Oil and gas public relations (PR), marketing and design firm Think is looking forward to a “productive and exciting” 2016 after appointing a new managing director to drive growth.

Rachel Creegan, who joined Aberdeen-based think last year as PR and marketing director, adds 16 years’ marketing and communications experience.

She was previously head of marketing at Robert Gordon University and other past roles saw her working in the tourism industry and at the Press and Journal.

Annabel Sall, who founded think in 2004 and has grown it over the past 11 years to service a range of businesses, predominantly in the global energy sector, said: “I’ve seen a lot of change, internally and within the oil and gas industry, since I set up the company more than a decade ago.

“We continue to focus on the global energy sector along with other sectors, including food and drink, consumer, property and renewables.

“With Rachel’s support and drive, we will continue to develop and adapt to the changes and challenges of the industry, and are looking forward to a productive and exciting 2016.”

Ms Sall is chief executive at think, which has a 15-strong team operating out of offices in Bon Accord Square.

Previous managing director Fiona McWhirr has stepped down from her role after seven years to spend more time with her young family, but she remains involved with the company as a consultant and continues to lead its media training.

Meanwhile, estate agent Savills has appointed Simpson Buglass to head up its Aberdeen office from January.

Mr Buglass has more than 30 years’ experience in the Scottish property market and joins Savills from chartered surveyor Graham and Sibbald.

Mark Fleming, joint regional business head of Savills Scotland, said: “Simpson’s appointment in Aberdeen will provide the platform to help us to continue grow both our client base and offer within the region.”

Mr Buglass takes over his new role from Ewan Berkeley, who is moving closer to home as head of the firm’s Brechin office.

Finally, digital technologies trade body ScotlandIS has recruited Allan Sutherland as its Grampian co-ordinator to promote and lobby on behalf of the sector in the north-east. He previously worked for companies including Oracle, NCR, Stratus and Burroughs.
