Lorna Jack, chief executive of the Law Society said: ‘I am delighted to welcome Scott to the Law Society and very much look forward to working with him as part of our senior leadership team. This year we will be launching our new operational strategy, and with Scott’s experience, his input and contribution to that is going to be invaluable. As well as his previous senior appointments, Scott has extensive financial management experience and has sat on numerous audit and risk committees, making him the ideal candidate to help take our finance and operations directorate forward into 2020 and beyond.’
Mr Lindsay said: ‘It’s an exciting time for the Law Society. Having just celebrated its 70th anniversary, there is much to be proud of, in particular, a team who are clearly passionate about the legal profession they serve and committed to achieving excellence in everything they do. There are huge opportunities ahead of us and I am very much looking forward to working with the Society’s Council, Board, leadership team and colleagues across the business to deliver outstanding facilities, services and digital programmes which continue to meet and exceed our members’ needs, operating a world-class governance structure and ensure that our work is aligned with our mission, purpose and goals.”
