Henry Robertson appointed new Director of Finance
We are delighted to announce the appointment of Henry Robertson onto the Bowls Scotland Board as our new Director of Finance.
Henry graduated from Queen Margaret University in 2014 with a degree in Business Management and began working at Standard Life, where he completed his Accountancy qualification to become a chartered Accountant. Since then, he has held various roles in the financial services sector, currently working as a Financial Controller for a financial advice business.
In his spare time, Henry is also a keen bowler having taken up the sport at 13-years-old at Castlepark Bowling Club in East Lothian. Throughout his time at the club, Henry has carried out a number of voluntary roles from Club Treasurer to Committee Member, giving him a strong understanding of how bowling clubs operate on a day-to-day basis. On the green, Henry enjoys competing in the East Lothian Friday night league and the camaraderie it brings between clubs, regularly coming up against the likes of former Commonwealth Games gold medallists, Alex Marshall MBE, Derek Oliver and Willie Wood MBE.
Outside of work, Henry also has a passion for helping the next generation of footballers having previously worked with the Scottish Football Association for five years as a qualified coach. This involved coaching children from the ages of 3 to 16 with varying abilities from infants first kicking the ball to East Lothian development squads.
Looking forward to his new role, Henry said: “I am over the moon to be taking on this role with Bowls Scotland. It’s a really exciting opportunity to utilise the professional expertise I have gained and contribute to a sport I love.”
Bowls Scotland Chair, Kim Walker, added: “I am excited that Henry is joining the Board as our new Director of Finance.
“He brings a wealth of knowledge from working within the finance industry for many years and will play a vital role in the strategic planning of our budgets for 2024 and beyond. Henry’s passion for our sport will undoubtedly make him a welcome addition to the Board.”
