Leiths are pleased to announce the appointment of the following staff:
• New Fleet Engineer – Hamish Stevenson
• New Senior Quantity Surveyor – Debbie McKellar
• New Distribution Manager – Tina Stuart
New Fleet Engineer – Hamish Stevenson
Earlier this year, Hamish Stevenson joined Leiths as Fleet Engineer, looking after our road-going vehicles and related workshops.
Hamish has spent most of his working life in the engineering sector, firstly serving a recognised apprenticeship in a local Ford dealership, then progressing to repairs on forestry, road construction equipment and HGV vehicles with the Forestry Commission. After this, he spent a further nine years with the Robertson Group, initially carrying out plant repairs and then progressing to supervisory and management roles.
During this time, he was a navigator in the Scottish Rally Championship, but was involved in a serious accident, which meant he was forced to spend a long period in hospital. After recovering, Hamish then joined Moray College as Motor Vehicle Lecturer, delivering light vehicle courses to both apprentices and full time students, as well as providing learning support to Special Needs groups.
In more recent years, he has been involved in modern vehicle repair and workshop management in the Road Haulage Industry, so his interest in vehicle repair and development continues with a new challenge here at Leith’s, where his experience in previous roles is proving invaluable.
His passion for motorsport also continues; though no longer competing, he still follows the progress of the Scottish Rally Championship, and Formula 1, but also enjoys more sedate pass-times including hill walking.
New Distribution Manager – Tina Stuart
Tina joined Leiths in July and, based at our head office in Cove, she is responsible for the various distribution teams within the company. Tina started her career in the parcel delivery industry at White Arrow Express (now better known at Yodel) in 1999 as an Administrator, moving up to the role of Senior Administrator. After covering for various managers within the Aberdeen depot, Tina was promoted to the role of Regional Planning Manager. Although she had no previous experience in this role, she took to it like a duck to water and remained in this position for almost eight years where she assisted and supported depots across Scotland and Northern Ireland. Before joining Leiths, Tina was working as Service Centre Manager at the Aberdeen Depot where she had overall responsibility for the site.
