Craig Ritchie explained:
“I have been a member of the Board of Management since 2018. I was looking for my first Non-Executive Board role and, having grown up in Perth, I was drawn to the position at Perth College UHI. In taking on the role, I wanted to use my financial management skills and experience to ensure the College is financially stable and able to focus on delivering the best possible education to students.

"Over the past three years, we have been through some unprecedented times, and the Board has worked closely with the Senior Management Team to support them in dealing with the challenges. The Board is made up of a diverse group of individuals, each of whom bring a different skill set and perspective to the role. This brings a great balance to discussions, and ensures all angles are covered when making strategic decisions.

"As well as supporting the development of the College, my role on the Board has also been beneficial to me personally. My colleagues on the Board are a great group of people; it makes all of our meetings enjoyable and I’ve built friendships with other Board members. Also, the variety of issues we tackle as a Board have helped me to broaden my skillset which has served me well in my other professional roles. Overall, I would recommend a role on the Board for any interested individuals.”
