Cameron Buchanan, a well known figure on the international textile scene, has retired from his seat on the British Wool Marketing Board following a 9-year tenure as an Independent Member of the organization's Board.

Mr Buchanan was managing director of the leading textile company Harrisons of Edinburgh. After selling the company he took on the role of its international marketing manager and now travels extensively throughout Europe and the USA developing new markets for a wide range of Scottish cloths and tweeds.

“The British Wool Marketing Board has a very definite future and is an essential part of the British sheep industry. After spending 9 years as an Independent Member I firmly believe the Board has a vital role to play – not only in the way it collects, grades and sells wool on behalf of the UK's sheep producers but also through its vigorous promotion and marketing of British wool across the world.

“I hope I've been able to bring a broad perspective of opinion to my association with the Board. It's only when you work closely with this organisation that you realise how important it is to the agricultural farming sector – something I trust will continue to earn the Board the support it deserves from producers,” said Mr Buchanan.

Sussex farmer Frank Langrish, Chairman of the British Wool Marketing Board, said Mr Buchanan had brought invaluable expertise to the Board. “The last 9 years have been some of the most important in the Board's history and we are indebted to Cameron for his tremendous enthusiasm and commitment to British wool.”
