McGill Makes it into Top Ten of Social Media Experts

A former Scottish Daily Mirror journalist has been named among the top ten social media experts in Scotland.

Writing on the website of The Drum media and marketing magazine, digital account director and blogger, Colin Gilchrist, picks Craig McGill an No.9.

He also names Ewan McIntosh as No.1; McIntosh is due to write occasionally for 

Writes Gilchrist: ”I’ve been working in the delivery of social media strategies for about five years and figured it was about time to highlight one or two individuals that I think deserve some recognition; unsung heroes if you like – known to a select few because they slog it out for companies and do little to promote themselves other than be recognised by their peers.

“I must confess, these are not 'Friends' but people I have met face to face and have watched their progress in this field.”

The list reads:

1. Ewan McIntosh

For his amazing work with the SNP in this election and an unswerving focus on the benefits to education.

2. Mike Coulter

For his work with a large legal firm and one of the biggest / best advertising agencies.

3. Barry Dewar

For 'head-down' focus on what his clients want and delivers.

4. Kyle Murdoch

For his loyalty to Fatbuzz and the great work they produce.

5. Andrew Burnett

For wearing a woolly hat in the summer … a brilliant knowledge of Digg and so much more.

6. Mike McGrail

Just for being the Social Penguin.

7. Kelly Forbes

Her knowledge of social media analytics knows no bounds.

8. Gordon McIntyre-Kemp

For being yellow … a very early champion that completely focuses on results.

9. Craig McGill

For being a soap dodging … for doing his utmost to help, share and deliver.

10. Annie Boyd

For adding glamour, a sensitive tone with a great sense of humour that knows how to read people.
