Celia Tennant Chief Executive
With 20 years' leadership experience in the private sector, chief executive Celia Tennant joined Inspiring Scotland at its inception in 2009 and has since developed a deep appreciation and understanding of the voluntary sector.
She has led on the implementation and management of all of Inspiring Scotland's Funds which have brought over £60million to the Scottish voluntary sector, to tackle a range of social issues including youth unemployment, a lack of free play opportunities for children, increased support in early years, and support for disadvantaged communities to harness their own potential.
Celia previously spent 20 years in the pharmaceutical industry with Pfizer and as a senior leader she developed a breadth of experience across many areas.
She brings passion and unparalleled knowledge of the charities within Inspiring Scotland's portfolios as well as a commitment to improving the lives of Scotland's most vulnerable people.
She is a voluntary board member for a number of not-for-profit and sporting organisations including the Building Safer Communities Programme Board, the Common Purpose Advisory Group, and is currently Chair of Building Recovery-centred Communities and Reducing Stigma Group - a themed group that has been established by the new Partnership for Action on Drugs in Scotland.
Celia has always focused on people and successful teamwork and was recognised as the Institute of Directors Scotland Director of the Year for 2015 for Family Friendly and Flexible Working.
Celia loves the great outdoors and enjoys pushing herself to new limits through multi-sport and endurance events. She also relishes time spent with family and friends.
