Elaine MacKenzie

Elaine MacKenzie is Founder and Director of The Namaste Partnership Limited, and its trading partnership, NP Land and Property.

The company was formed to facilitate and extend business connections, bringing together like-minded entities, for mutual benefit and NP Land and Property was formed in 2019 to deal in commercial property development opportunities.

Elaine is also a founder of a niche equestrian publication distributed across Scotland and the North of England and a Director of Ceangal Corporate Limited, a commercial consultancy aimed at opening business opportunities for Scottish Companies overseas, initially targeting the MENA regions, concentrating on Oil and Gas, Mining, Agriculture and Infrastructure sectors. She led the company’s venture into working with the Libyan British Business Council to advance trade possibilities at a high-level International Conference in Aberdeen.

Elaine’s interest in and knowledge of politics, led to her involvement, as Deputy Chair, with The Scottish Research Society, a non-party organisation campaigning for the Union during the Scottish Independence referendum in 2014. She is currently Deputy Chair of the Scottish Unionist Party.

She has served on the boards of a number of leading charitable and cultural organisations, including The Royal Lyceum Theatre, the Development Board of The Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies, Perth College Development Board and The Princes Trust in Scotland.

Views from the board

  • Having heard investors that I know well, actively stepping back from investing in the Scottish economy, I fear for the future and am urging business leaders to share their support for Scotland to remain in the Union of the United Kingdom. It will only be by strength of voice and an evidenced based case that we will be able to defend the will of Scottish businesses of all sizes to remain in the Union.
    — Robert D. Kilgour
  • Patriotism is a love for your country and as a proud Scot I have spent my career helping to build economic opportunities and in attracting investment. I am also proud to be British and passionately want the United Kingdom to endure.  To succeed in that aim, we must acknowledge that remaining part of the Union is a key lynchpin in growing Scotland’s wealth.
