Doc said: “Scottish Gymnastics has seen significant growth over the last number of years and I am privileged to be joining as CEO at this exciting time. 

“I am looking forward to working with the team as well as the clubs, volunteers, coaches, officials and gymnasts that make the sport what it is. I am sure that together we can continue the growth and development of all aspects of gymnastics across the country as we move into the next phase of our strategic plan.”

Scott Harper, Chair of the Scottish Gymnastics Board, said: “On behalf of Scottish Gymnastics, I am delighted to welcome Doc to the team. He brings with him a broad range of leadership skills and experience from his different roles and responsibilities in sport in Scotland.

“Doc joins us at the start of the second phase of our 12-year strategy to lead the team which continues to build, evaluate and develop gymnastics with our long-term vision of a strong Scottish Gymnastics, inspiring and nurturing emerging talent.”
