Alumni Case Study - Stuart Common

Stuart graduated from RGU with a BA (Hons) Management degree in 2008.

Stuart first joined Mackie’s on a placement year and, just a few years on, is now the youngest member of Mackie’s management team.

His varied remit includes management of several of Mackie’s largest customer accounts for both ice cream and chocolate – with sole responsibility of turnover of over £5millon. Stuart also enjoys working to develop Scottish food and drink as exemplified by his active role in Grampian Food Forum and his appointment, again as the youngest member, to the ONE (Opportunity North East) Food, Drink & Agriculture Board. Stuart’s impressive accomplishments were deservedly recognised in the 2016 Northern Star Business Awards where he was the ‘Rising Star’ Award winner.
