Scott Cairns

Non Executive Director, James Donaldson Group Ltd

Scott was the Group Managing Director of the James Donaldson Group Ltd of Companies for eight years before stepping down in April 2020. Scott’s tenure saw the Donaldson Group of businesses double in turnover to over £200M with several consecutive years of record profitability. He was the first non family member to head up the Group, previously being Managing Director of James Donaldson Timber and MGM. A member of the Young Presidents Organisation, Scott didn’t just dive into the Donaldson Group – he is also a ‘retired’ skydiver with 128 jumps under his belt! When he isn’t working, he has a lovely Hungarian Vizsla – the furry member of the family who takes up most of he and his wife’s spare time.
