Teresa Dougall Appointed Director of Regions

New post created to manage important regional team

NFU Scotland has appointed Teresa Dougall as Director of Regions.

Teresa, currently Regional Manager for Dumfries & Galloway, has taken up the new Director of Regions post, which will see her manage the team of regional managers at NFU Scotland.  She will also continue in her existing role as Regional Manager.

Welcoming the announcement, NFU Scotland Chief Executive Scott Walker said: “Following a review of how our hugely important regional team at NFUS is managed, it was decided that it would benefit from a dedicated manager who would also become a member of the NFUS management team.  

“Over the past three-and-a-half years, Teresa has been hugely influential in servicing the needs of members in one of our biggest regions.  Teresa has also had an important role in working with stakeholders to deliver new and fresh initiatives locally such as the Dairy Women’s Network, the Health and Wellbeing in the Farming Community Project and the region’s Retired Farming Social Group.

“Given that experience, Teresa is the ideal person for an expanded role where she is now responsible for the line management of the regional team as well as becoming a member of the NFUS management team.

Teresa said: “I am delighted to have been appointed as Director of Regions and look forward to working with the regional team, all NFUS staff and the Board of Directors to improve the team’s role on the ground.   

“However, this will not detract from my original role as Dumfries & Galloway Regional Manager and should, over time, allow us to improve our engagement and service to members across all regions.

“In providing a voice on the management team, I will be looking to develop the very important role of our regional managers, both as team members and individuals, to ensure our members receive the best possible service.”
