RSNO announces new board Director

The Royal Scottish National Orchestra has appointed David Robinson as an elected Director to its board.

As the founder and former CEO of life insurer Bright Grey (now Royal London), David has a wealth of experience working in business, finance, governance in higher education and has senior level experience in the third sector. He is the former Chair of the charity ‘Smalls for All’, a Scottish charity that tackles issues of inequality by collecting and distributing underwear to help women and children, in Africa and the UK. David is also the former Governor of Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh.

RSNO Chair Dame Sue Bruce said: “This is an important appointment for the RSNO as we welcome David Robinson to the Board. As an organisation we have adapted how we work and serve audiences during lockdown. I am pleased that David will join us as we plan for the future. His strategic experience will ensure we remain resilient and are well equipped to continue to keep people connected through the power of orchestral music.”

In addition to the RSNO, Mr Robinson also sits as the Treasurer and Senior Independent Board Member for UK press regulator IMPRESS and is a Non-Executive Director and Audit Committee Chair of Forester Life (UK). He is also a Trustee of ‘Changing the Chemistry’, a charity which seeks to improve board effectiveness by increasing diversity of thought.
