Stephen Leckie presented with top honour at Scottish tourism awards
We were delighted to receive the news late last night that Stephen Leckie, our Chief Executive was presented with the top honour at what is regarded as the most prestigious award in the Scottish tourism industry – The VisitScotland Thistle Awards.
Stephen was presented with the Silver Thistle award by Mike Cantlay, Chairman of visitScotland who described him as a "shining light" for tourism in Scotland.
He added; "It is with great pleasure that I'm awarding this year's Silver Thistle Award to
Stephen. His outstanding contribution to tourism for the majority of his working life means there is no one more fitting than him to be recognised for this award."
In addition to his role as Chief Executive of Crieff Hydro, Stephen is also Chairman of the Scottish Tourism Alliance, Chair of the Crieff Community Council and the Tourism
Leadership Group. He holds office as a committee member of the British Hospitality Association, he is President and Director of Perthshire Chamber of Commerce and Deputy Lieutenant of Perth & Kinross – a title which is appointed by the Queen.
Marc Crothall, Chief Executive of the Scottish Tourism Alliance (STA) commented; "Such a well deserved recipient. Stephen leads and inspires not just those who work at close quarters with him but everyone involved with the STA. He is a truly committed hard working professional who equally knows the importance of still making the industry fun and enjoyable to work in".
