However, the Practice is delighted to retain Andrew’s involvement as a part-time Consultant. The entire Narro team expresses deep gratitude to Andrew for his significant contributions, dedication, and leadership during his tenure on the Board.

Andrew played a pivotal role in guiding Narro’s growth and success during his time on the Board of Directors.

In conjunction with Andrew’s retirement, Narro is pleased to announce the promotions of Robbie Templeton and Duncan Mowat to the position of Director. Both Robbie and Duncan have demonstrated exceptional abilities and have played vital roles in driving the company’s success in their respective capacities.

Robbie Templeton, who joined Narro as a university graduate seventeen years ago, has consistently exhibited a strong work ethic, profound industry knowledge, and outstanding leadership skills. In 2020, Robbie was promoted to Regional Director and successfully established a new office for Narro in Aberdeen. Robbie has been instrumental in fostering client relationships and driving business growth, both within Aberdeen and across the company. His promotion to Director reflects his outstanding contributions and unwavering commitment to Narro’s success.

Duncan Mowat, with over twenty years of experience in the engineering sector, joined Narro in 2020 as a Senior Associate and swiftly showcased his dedication, expertise, and leadership skills. Throughout his tenure, Duncan has successfully led numerous impactful projects, delivering exceptional results and exceeding client expectations. His promotion to Director acknowledges his significant contributions to the company’s growth and his ability to lead and inspire teams.

In Narro’s Glasgow office, the company is also delighted to announce the promotion of Garry Porch to the position of Regional Director. Garry joined Narro in 2021, bringing extensive experience in the structural and civil engineering industry. In his new role, Garry will drive the growth and expansion of the Glasgow team.

Ben Adam, Managing Director of Narro, commented, “After twenty years of fantastic service on the Board and his wealth of knowledge and expertise, Andrew will definitely be a hard act to follow. However, I’m delighted that he’ll remain involved with the Practice as a Consultant so that we can continue to benefit from his wisdom and experience. I’m also absolutely delighted that Robbie and Duncan are joining the Director team. Both have shown a real commitment to continuing the growth of the company, and their own skills and ideas will be a huge asset. It’s a very exciting time for everyone at Narro.”
