(L-R) Dave Acton, John Brebner, James Gregg

This strategic appointment will support ambitious growth plans for the coming year as the company continues to post record results.

Motive has seen a record turnover for 2018 and is set to exceed its projected 20% increase on the previous year.

John Brebner has joined the management team to support founding directors James Gregg and Dave Acton with their ongoing growth strategy for the business.

Mr Brebner, who has been a non-executive director on Motive’s board since February last year, is a finance specialist with 34 years banking experience and is a seasoned advisor to SME and corporate businesses. He is currently also a non-executive director with Aberdeen Harbour Board, president of Aberdeen Chamber of Commerce and supports the board of local charity, Befriend a Child.

Mr Brebner, who has been a non-executive director on Motive’s board since February last year, said:

I have known James and Dave for a number of years and, although they have seen some tough times, I was hugely impressed with how they came through the other side. I was very keen to become more involved and support them as the business is poised for further success. Motive is hungry for growth, so we will actively be sourcing potential acquisitions in the new year. My role will be to support that process and help to integrate new teams and implement change management programmes.

John Brebner, Finance Director
