Media Release: Association of Scotland’s Self-Caterers appoints chief executive


THE Association of Scotland’s Self-Caterers is delighted to announce the appointment of Fiona Campbell as their first chief executive.

The Association of Scotland’s Self-Caterers (ASSC) is the only trade association working exclusively for self-catering in Scotland, run for and by holiday property owners in Scotland.

This is a significant new role in one of Scotland’s key industries, and represents a major development in the structure and ambition of the ASSC. As chief executive, Fiona will play a leading role on ensuring that the businesses of the self-catering sector contribute proactively to the future of Scottish tourism.

“We are delighted to welcome Fiona onto our team at such a pivotal moment in the Association’s history, which we all believe will lead to exciting times ahead,” says David Smythe, chair.

Fiona brings a wealth of experience of the Scottish tourism and self-catering industries, having owned and managed Mansefield House and Mansefield Studios in Arrochar for over 12 years. Additional industry knowledge has come from her recent position as director of the Arrochar and Tarbet Community Development Trust.

Matthew Haggis, vice-chair, adds: “I feel the portfolio of experience that Fiona brings to the role will greatly enhance the continued growth of the Association.”

Fiona says: “I am thrilled to have been chosen for this new role. I am looking forward to meeting and working with current members, and introducing the ASSC to new members who may not be aware of the quantifiable benefits membership offers to individual businesses.  I am excited about engaging with government and industry representatives and reinforcing the Association’s position as a key industry voice”.
