Long established STLA member MacNaughton Holdings is under new management.

James Dracup has replaced Blair MacNaughton as Managing Director of the 70-employee manufacturer and wholesaler of premium Scottish-made textiles.

Mr MacNaughton has remained a chairman on the board and has become chairman of the company which will continue to be owned by the MacNaughton family.

Mr MacNaughton said, “I’m naturally sad to be stepping down from my executive role but I’m delighted that the company has been able to secure a worthy successor to take my place leading the management team.”

Mr Dracup, who has been managing director of Johnston’s of Elgin, said “I am delighted to make a return to Scotland and have the opportunity to lead one of the country’s most respected manufacturers. I hope to build on the foundations that Blair has laid, and continue to develop international markets for the wonderful products made by our team in Scotland.”

The STLA would like to extend a warm welcome back to Mr Dracup, and wish him the best of luck in his new role.
