Hugh Hall – formerly of the University of Strathclyde – has taken up the post of principal at Fife College.
Taking over from Hugh Logan, Hall joins Fife College at an exciting time for education in the region, with the recent opening of the College’s new Levenmouth Campus and plans to build a new state-of-the-art Campus in Dunfermline by 2020.
He is now responsible for approximately 22,000 learners, 6,000 of which are full-time, on five main campuses throughout Fife and manages a commercial client base of £7.3 million and turnover of £43.5 million.
Hall said: “I have very much been looking forward to starting my new role at Fife College and delighted that I’m now here and in post. As the new Principal and Chief Executive my first focus over the coming months will be to meet and listen to as many of our staff, students and stakeholders as possible to hear their views on the future of Fife College and the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.
“A series of sessions have already been planned so that I can visit all our campuses, introduce myself and give staff an opportunity to ask questions and share ideas.
“Becoming the Principal of Fife College is a great honour and I look forward to working with our staff, students and external partners to drive the College forward to benefit those in the region and beyond.”
Hall, who lives in Cellardyke, is a chartered accountant with expertise in transformational change, governance and major project development and delivery.
His life has been devoted to public service and he has held a number of senior appointments in a wide range of organisations. In 2009, he was awarded the Public Sector Finance Director of the Year award in recognition of his leadership role in the transformation of Scotland’s enterprise network.
His non-executive roles, past and present, include: eight years as a member of Court at Edinburgh Napier University; Chairman of the Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy in Scotland; Chair of Forth Valley College; Chair of Colleges Scotland and Chair of the Scottish Children’s Lottery.
