Non-Exec appointed to drive long-term strategy at Robertson Granite

Bob Hutcheson joins Robertson Granite

Bob Hutcheson joins Robertson Granite as a Non-Executive Director to help plan for the company's long-term future.

Memorial wholesaler A&J Robertson (Granite) Ltd based in Aberdeen has appointed Bob Hutcheson as a Non-Executive Director to assist in developing a longer-term strategy for the company.

Bob’s background is accountancy and includes having been Managing Partner of the Aberdeen offices of KPMG. He has a track record of carving out innovative solutions for businesses by getting under the skin of an organisation’s issues to drive change.

Graeme Robertson, who heads the business and suffered a mild stroke last year, says Bob's appointment has a "strong element of succession planning" about it.

Robertson Granite has traded from Aberdeen for almost 150 years and is continuing to look for ways to develop and expand. It already has its own chain of memorial masons and a stake in a crematorium as well as supplying memorials to independent memorial masons and other stonework locally.
