MOWI Scotland seawater manager David MacGillivray marked 30 years with the company last week in a special ceremony, complete with cake.
He was presented with his long service award by Mowi farming operations director Gideon Pringle, at the company’s Fort William headquarters.
MacGillivray (nicknamed ‘Bodger’ by his colleagues) started working for Mowi, formerly Marine Harvest, in April 1989 as a farm assistant at Kingairloch.
He was then promoted to assistant farm manager at Gorsten in November 1995, and became manager of the farm five years later.
His next move was to Uist, in 2005, where he was appointed area manager, and in 2007 he was made area manager for South, before his current appointment in 2016.
Last year, MacGillivray won the prestigious innovation award at the Scottish Marine Aquaculture Awards, held in Aviemore, for developing environets for circular pens, a move that has led to improvements in gill health at the company’s farm sites.
Mowi said on its Facebook page: ‘We would like to take this opportunity to thank David very much for his enormous contribution over the years.’
