An Aberdeen businessman has been named the new chairman of a north-east cancer care charity.
Kenny Anderson, the founder of Anderson Construction and Anderson Buchan Properties, will take the reins at Clan Cancer Support’s board of directors.
He succeeds Robbie Duncan, who has held the position of chairman at the charity for the past two years.
The charity has announced several other changes at board level.
Andrew Spence will be joining Gregory Poon as its second vice-chairman, while new board members include Ken Gordon, a senior partner at Burness Paull, and Fraser Moonie, a chief operating officer at Bibby Offshore.
Mr Anderson is a fellow and a former chairman of the Institute of Building in Scotland (CIOB).
He said: “Cancer care is something I hold incredibly close to my heart and I have the utmost respect and regard for charitable agencies that provide help and support to those who are affected by cancer.”
Mr Duncan will remain with the charity in a “past chairman” role.
The charity’s chief executive, Debbie Thomson, said: “We are all delighted to welcome Kenny, Ken and Fraser to Clan.
“Their range of skills and expertise has added to the strength of our board and I am very much looking forward to working with Kenny as our new chairman and all our board members throughout 2015.”
