Shaun Milne joins Connect in new role

We have added yet another new face to our award-winning line-up as we set our sights on our growth plans for 2022. 

Shaun Milne joins the team as our new Head of Content, bringing almost 30 years of experience as a journalist, war correspondent, editor, digital pioneer and latterly media consultant with him. 

He previously held senior roles with The Herald, The Scotsman, STV, Daily Mirror, Daily Record and Scottish Sun to name a few; was MD for one of the UK’s biggest news agencies, Director of Digital for an international PR company and ran an award-winning design and publishing business. 

Most recently he has been the voice for The Scotsman’s Sustainable Scotland podcast and CEO at Norwegian-facing business, Skog Media Associates, working with some of the biggest names in sustainability and renewable energy. 

Shaun said: “I have long been an admirer of the high-quality work consistently produced by the talented team at Connect and the constant innovation and thinking that goes on, so it is very exciting for me to be joining at such an exciting time.

“My new role will also involve some of my passions around sustainability, renewables and the Nordic region along with all the creativity and forward thinking that goes on. In many ways it is the perfect fit, and I can’t wait to get cracking.”

David Cameron, Chairman, said: “We’re delighted that Shaun has chosen to join us at Connect.  His knowledge and experience is of the highest calibre and he will add greatly to the strength of our team.”
