Alan Thomson

Head of Corporate Relations, Scottish Water

I joined Scottish Water in 2003 from Scottish Power where I held a range of management positions over an 18 year period.

My current role in Scottish Water is Head of Corporate Relations within the Corporate Affairs department, where I'm responsible for business wide stakeholder management within Public Affairs, Government Relations, Local Authorities and key stakeholders throughout Scotland.

My role sees me working closely with the Chief Executive and Directors to protect and enhance Scottish Water's reputation.

I have over 35 years utility experience within electricity, gas and water both in the private and public sector and have also worked in Qatar in support of Scottish Water's international activities.

I'm a Director in Glasgow Chamber of Commerce and Chair the Place Policy Committee and recently joined SCDI’s Policy Forum to play an active role in promoting the voice of business.
