After Leaving school, Alan worked in the family chip shop while pursuing a career in motor racing. He then developed outside catering, wholesale and butchery departments.

Neil Mackie - Kingsgate Centre - nmackie@kingsgateonline.co.uk

Neil Mackie began his career in shopping centre and property management in early 1990, following a step up from retail branch management on the south coast of England. Throughout his career, he have continued to develop and progress through a series of shopping centres and commercial properties throughout Scotland, ultimately managing the Kingsgate Shopping Centre in Dunfermline. The Kingsgate Centre, built in 1985 and extended in 2008, comprises 340,000SqFt of lettable retail space and enjoys an annual footfall circa 9 million per annum.

A keen musician, Neil has played bass in a number of rock bands since 1979, greatest personal pride being playing support to Nazareth at the Glen Pavilion in 2002. He latterly has fronted his own band on guitar and lead vocals since 2004. Neil also enjoys a number of outdoor pursuits which gives him great opportunities to get out into the great Scottish countryside.

Hazel Mapleson Boots

I am the manager of the Boots store newly opened in the Kingsgate shopping Centre. I spent 21 years working for Boots in Edinburgh before moving to Fife 8 years ago to manage the Kirkcaldy store. I have worked across a number of different store formats including flagship, local, travel, and high street.

I was appointed store manager of the Dunfermline store in February 2013 to oversee the store closure project as well as the opening of the brand new, larger store located in the Kingsgate Shopping Centre. My vision for my new store is to have the customer at the very heart of everything we do and to set my team up to be the best they can be.  

 

Calum Miller - P.J Molloy's - calum@weekendrevolution.co.uk

I began working as a self-employed gig promoter in 2008. From there, I started my company Weekend Revolution, working with artists from all over the UK and bringing them to Dunfermline’s various music venues. As time went on, PJ Molloys became one of our key venues so in 2010 when the opportunity to acquire the lease presented itself, this is what we did. Since then, we have worked to build a musical hub for Dunfermline as well as continuing to bring national acts to the likes of The Alhambra and Glen Pavilion. 

Over the next 5 years I want to see Dunfermline's reputation for its live music scene grow and hopefully a few more venues can benefit on the back of this. I see live music and shows as an integral part of Dunfermline’s evening economy, and going forward hope to increase the number of people choosing to come to Dunfermline for this reason.
