Mr Alex Laing
Assistant Chair & Treasurer
Alex Laing is originally from a sales and Marketing background running his own highly successful company for over thirty years covering the UK branching out to the export sector across Europe. Alex decided to completely change focus and give youth a helping hand looking at disadvantaged school leavers and giving career guidance into real employment. He later added re-offenders leaving prison by chance as he perceived the 80% re offending could be reduced through his work. A chance meeting Karen Craig lead to meeting of minds to develop frameworks to remove employment disadvantage.
