Leadership team

Our leadership team is currently chaired by Carroll Buxton, interim chief executive, and includes seven directors. A profile of each director, including their registers of interests, can be seen below. Our chief executive Charlotte Wright is on extended leave at present due to personal circumstances.

The team meets 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 >
