​An Comunn Gaidhealach names new Chief Executive

Published: 13 Feb 2020

​An Comunn Gaidhealach has announced that James Graham, originally from Lochinver, will be the organisation’s new Chief Executive Officer when John Morrison retires at the end of March following over twelve years in that post.

The considerable wide experience James has acquired in the decade since 2010 employed as An Comunn’s Mod Manager, tackling the varied management and delivery challenges of National Mods as well as Provincial events, will be of considerable benefit to him in his new post.

James said. “It is a very great honour to be taking over in this post and I am very much looking forward to maintaining the outstanding work which John Morrison established, but I recognise this will be challenging. My ambition will be to strive to develop and strengthen the organisation further in the future. As a participant in Provincial and National Mods since boyhood and through my management work over the past decade, I have become increasingly aware that the Mod is a foundation for Gaelic culture and its arts. This job will bring challenges, but I look forward to the unqualified support of my colleagues, and our Board Members, in taking the organisation forward.”

An Comunn President, Allan Campbell, said. “We congratulate James, and welcome him to this important job, and we wish him every success in the post! At the same time, we extend our warmest good wishes for a long and happy retirement to John Morrison, when he will stand down from the post at the end of March.”
