Director appointment at Spotless

Spotless Commercial Cleaning Ltd has promoted Laurie Scott to the role of Finance Director. Scott, who initially joined Spotless as its Financial Controller in 2021, has also been appointed to the company’s board.

A qualified certified chartered accountant, he spent 14 years with Johnston Carmichael as part of the firm’s business advisory team. Before moving to Spotless, he then took on a key finance role at Edinburgh-based tech start-up E Fundamentals (International) where he helped the business secure additional investment to drive its successful expansion into the US market.

In his new, elevated role, he takes responsibility for the finance functions of Spotless as well as its subsidiary companies Brightwaste and Brightwater Services with a strong focus on financial performance to support growth targets.

Headquartered in Edinburgh with regional offices throughout the UK, Spotless is one of the UK’s leading professional cleaning contractors. The company operates 1,600 cleaning contracts, providing a full range of cleaning services for blue chip companies, retail outlets, industrial leaders and premier commercial premises.

Roger Green, Chairman of Spotless Commercial Cleaning who set up the company in 1988, said: “I’m delighted to announce Laurie’s promotion to Finance Director and his appointment to the Spotless board. Since joining us two years ago, he has made a significant impact through his astute management of finance matters for Spotless and our subsidiary companies Brightwater and Brightwaste Services.

“Laurie’s move to Finance Director, where he will provide further advice on strategic issues including potential acquisition targets, underlines our commitment towards developing and rewarding our people. I look forward to continuing to work closely with him in this new role.”
