Originally from Greenock, Danny is a graduate of Glasgow University and a Chartered Accountant. He worked in the accounting profession in Scotland and Europe for a number of years before joining the oil industry in the early eighties. He spent most of his oil industry career with Total (French oil major); working in the UK as well as a number of overseas postings – Middle East, France and most recently Kazakhstan. In addition to financial positions, his career latterly focussed on transporting and marketing production from a large central Asian field. Retired in 2015, Danny now divides his time between grandchildren, dog and garden. Formerly living in Aberdeen, Danny and his wife relocated to East Lothian in 2018 to be nearer their three grandchildren (and two children!). He enjoys working with the team at The Ridge and helping support their growing contribution to the Dunbar area.
