Former Chief Executive of the Improvement Service dies


It is with great sadness that we announce that Colin Mair, former Chief Executive of the Improvement Service, passed away on Friday, 17 May.


Colin was instrumental in the founding of the Improvement Service and led the organisation from 2005 until his retirement in March 2018. As a passionate believer in the importance of public services working together to improve the life chances and opportunities of individuals, families and communities across Scotland, Colin's contribution to, and impact on, local public services will never be forgotten.


Colin's life will be celebrated at a private family funeral and our thoughts are with his family at this sad and difficult time.
