Iain Torrance

Managing Director, James Donaldson Timber Ltd

Iain is the Managing Director of James Donaldson Timber and has been working in the timber trade since the day of his 18th birthday back in 1984. His role is to develop the corporate strategy for JDT and ensure the organisational structure, health and safety procedures and finances are there to support it. Continuing his trend of making career decisions on big birthdays he started as MD of JDT on his 40th birthday in May 2006, and has therefore been with us for over 10 years. His professional accomplishments extend beyond the Donaldson Group, as he is currently President of the Scottish Timber Trade Association and past Chairman of the National Softwood Division of the TTF. And it seems work projects aren’t enough for Iain, as he’s currently working on a two storey extension to his house and a four car garage!
