The Scottish Council for Development and Industry (SCDI) announced on Monday its chief executive Mark Bevan has resigned from the organisation after a year at the SCDI.
Bevan’s last day was Friday, August 10.
SCDI gave no reason for Bevan’s departure.
SCDI chair Brendan Dick said: “Mark joined with a mandate to enhance SCDI’s relevance and importance to civic Scotland.
“In the last 12 months he has developed the SCDI team; made fundamental changes to our systems and processes; engaged members and stakeholders in our core purpose; whilst supporting the board to review and define our strategic direction.
“On behalf of the board and SCDI team, I thank Mark for his positive contribution and wish him well for the future.”
