Albyn School announces the appointment of new Bursar

We are delighted to congratulate Chris Simpson on his appointment as Bursar at Albyn School. Located in Aberdeen, Albyn is one of Scotland’s leading independent schools, educating boys and girls ages 2 – 18. Chris succeeds Kelly MacKay after five years of outstanding service, and took up post in July ahead of the 2022 – 2023 academic year.

Chris has had a varied career, working in senior finance roles across a wide range of industries. After earning an MA in Economics and Economic Science from the University of Aberdeen, Chris joined RBS as a Senior Analyst. He went on to work as Financial Controller for Aberdeen Standard Investments, and then as Director of Finance & Corporate Services for Aberdeen Performing Arts. A long-time Aberdeen local, he joins Albyn from his role as Group Finance Manager at Fifth Ring, a global B2B marketing and communications agency.

We wish Chris the best of luck in his new role.
