What is Scottish Business UK?
Scottish Business UK (SBUK) is an independent, non-party voice for business leaders who want to see Scotland thrive economically as part of the United Kingdom.
It seeks to make a positive case for that future and believes strongly that the campaign to break up the UK offers unacceptable disruption for business and public services, especially as Scotland tries to rebound from the challenges created by the Covid-19 pandemic.
As an organisation representing business leaders across a wide range of sectors and geographical areas in Scotland, SBUK is sending a clear signal to the Scottish Government that we do not welcome the additional uncertainty created by the continued threat of a second referendum on breaking up the United Kingdom. If a further referendum is announced, SBUK stands ready to garner the support of company leaders to secure the best interests of business across Scotland.
SBUK’s founder and chairman is serial entrepreneur Robert Kilgour and its Chief Executive is Struan Stevenson. They are supported by an Advisory Council whose members currently oversee business interests that together employ around 10,000 people in Scotland and 30,000 people across the UK and Ireland.
