Brian MacLaurin has joined The Outside Organisation as a non-executive director to bolster its ability to promote consumer brands.
'We have been looking at ways of expanding that side of the business,' said Outside CEO Alan Edwards. 'And Brian has a fantastic record.'
He added that current Outside clients would not be affected by MacLaurin's appointment.
MacLaurin said: 'I will be able to offer the perspective of a non-colleague employee. My role will be to give advice and help with the direction of the firm.' His Brian MacLaurin Associates role would not change, he added, insisting there was no conflict of interest.
