Peter Duthie has been with the company for 40 years. He had been appointed as Chief Executive in April 2014 and has been a member of the senior management team since 1991.

During his tenure as CEO, the SEC has hosted events such as the Commonwealth Games and COP26, whilst the OVO Hydro has become one of the leading live entertainment arenas in the world. In response to Covid-19, the SEC was converted into the NHS Louisa Jordan. Peter Duthie was appointed Chair of Scotland’s Event Industry Advisory Group (EIAG) to help the industry, as well as the SEC, negotiate the pandemic. Last year he was awarded an Honorary Degree by the University of Strathclyde in recognition of his contribution to culture, business, and society.

“It has been a privilege to be part of the SEC’s journey and to have been involved in the development of all sectors of our business,” Peter Duthie said. “We have a fantastic team at the SEC which delivers for Glasgow and Scotland and I’m sure will continue to build on its well-deserved reputation.”

Morag McNeill, Chair, SEC added: “I would like to thank Peter for his commitment to the business over the last forty years. He has played an important role in ensuring that the SEC has a global reputation for event delivery and he has been a great ambassador for the business and for Glasgow.”
