David Urquhart

David joined Gordon & MacPhail in 1972 as a business studies graduate, working in various areas of the company before becoming United Kingdom sales director, and in 2007 joint managing director

During David’s four decades with Gordon & MacPhail, the business has grown and developed significantly, from the days back in the 1970s when some 90 per cent of sales were to wholesale grocers to the current situation where the firm’s products are available in more than 50 countries with a growing loyal band of followers at home and abroad

Away from business, David Urquhart has always taken his responsibilities towards the community in which he lives very seriously, and is involved with many charitable ventures in and around Elgin and Forres. David is the epitome of compassionate commerce, and has done much to ensure that Gordon & MacPhail passes on through generations of the family in increasingly profitable shape, with its integrity very much intact
