GlobalScot Mark Bamforth has been honoured as the third member of the network's Hall of Fame by Scottish Enterprise Chief Executive, Dr Lena C Wilson on Monday 23 April.
GlobalScot launched its Hall of Fame in late 2011 to honour those members who have made a particularly significant contribution to Scotland over the past decade.
Mark, a GlobalScot since 2001, has consistently gone above and beyond in his support of Scottish businesses over the years and is also a founder and trustee of the Saltire Foundation.
Mark gave an insightful and entertaining presentation which comprised his career to date, his thoughts on being an entrepreneur, fund raising and the value of the Saltire Foundation for Scotland. With 38 attendees representing both Scottish life and chemical sciences companies plus a number of Saltire Foundation alumni, it was a busy event with lively Q&A chaired by Rhona Allison (Life and Chemical Sciences Director, Scottish Enterprise) and enthusiastic networking followed. During the event, Lena took the opportunity to formally induct Mark into the GlobalScot Hall of Fame in recognition of his contributions to Scotland over the past decade.
