A few words from NDTs new Chief Officer, Gordon Keenan

I've been asked to say a few words about myself in preparation for taking up the post of Chief Officer at NDT.


What to say?

Well, I've chosen to give a few highlights and let you form your own impression.

My home town was the base for a car factory in Renfrewshire and my school motto was 'Nil Sin Labore' – Nothing without Work ! That's a phrase which has stayed with me and has informed my approach to working life.


I think everyone deserves the opportunity of an apprenticeship.


I used to play for a footie team called Eadie Star !


I once appeared on stage at the Glasgow Pavilion with Elaine C Smith & Ben Elton – Yes, I made the tea and was a stage hand !


I've got three kids – Ben, Michael and Alex. One of them is a girl ! All still at primary & secondary school.


I sat my driving test on April Fools' day and...........passed at the third attempt !


I think it's fair to say that I come with a lot of experience of Community Regeneration, Skills Training & Social Enterprise from both North and South of Hadrian's wall. I spent many of my early years working in Glasgow on various regeneration programmes whilst my last major role was as Head of Funding & Partnerships for the National Housing Federation in London.

I'm looking forward to working with everyone in Neilston and to building on the very strong and positive platform that has been established already by the board and staff of the Neilston Development Trust. Neilston is a village with a great heritage and I'm looking to build on that with your support.


I'll be fulltime from the 4th Aug and am looking forward to meeting you in the coming weeks and months.
