Leadership team

Our leadership team is chaired by Charlotte Wright, chief executive, and includes our deputy chief executive, Carroll Buxton, as well as seven directors. A profile of each, including their registers of interests, can be seen below. 

The team meet most weeks to discuss and decide on policy matters, strategic issues and key projects. It reviews organisational performance against priorities and budgets, as well as approving all proposals going to HIE Board meetings.


In the interests of greater transparency in the public sector in Scotland, we disclose salary levels of the senior leadership team.  Find out more here >
