With a reluctant heart MaSP wishes to give the warmest farewell to the inspirational SMP CEO David Hope-Jones, who spent his last day of office on the 20th of January. After almost 15 years, David is moving on to head the tourism body, the South of Scotland Destination Alliance (SSDA).
During his time as SMP CEO, David was very instrumental in the growth of Malawi Scotland Partnership to becoming core-funded by the Scottish Government. MaSP members will remember fondly David’s passion, dedication and outstanding contribution to the bilateral relationship.
Beyond David’s brilliant intellect, creativity, energy and agility which are so clear to all, those who have worked most closely with David will also appreciate how giving he has been of his time and have experienced his steadfast consistency and lived commitment to genuine dignified partnership.
