The Grampian-Houston Association has made two key appointments as it looks to further develop its presence on both sides of the Atlantic.

Following a two-year period as vice-chairman, founder and managing director of Granite PR, Brett Jackson, has been appointed chairman. Aberdeen City Council director Gordon McIntosh will now take on the role of vice-chairman.

Additionally, Aberdeenshire Provost Hamish Vernal has been named as president and Aberdeen Lord Provost George Adam as vice-president.

The association was formed in 1979 after the Grampian Region and the City of Houston were officially twinned. It has more than 60 members who are working to enhance the sister city relationship by promoting and encouraging business, social, educational and cultural links.

Brett Jackson said: “The Grampian Houston Association has 36-year track record of successfully exploring and developing civic, cultural, education, social and business links between the energy hubs of Aberdeen and Houston. I am honoured to take on the role of chairman and will seek to add value, continue the good work the Association does and play a part in its future growth and development.”

Gordon McIntosh added: “I am delighted to take on the role of vice chairman. The relationship with Houston is fundamental to Aberdeen’s business sector and I am looking forward to working closely with Brett as chair to further our growing links with that city, as well as attracting new members to our Association.”
