New role for young businessman

TEEN entrepreneur Lyle Hamilton, from Dumfries, has been appointed to the board of trustees for Young Enterprise (YE) Scotland.

The 19-year-old, who is an alumni of the charity’s enterprise projects, will take up his new role in December.

YE Scotland say it is the first time they have purposefully sought and recruited trustees who directly represent the young people it serves. And Lyle will now work with fellow board members, YE Scotland CEO and management team to deliver the organisation’s strategy #EnterpriseForAll.

Lyle set up Idiom Marketing as part of the YE Scotland Company Programme in 2018, before spearheading its success across the education and tourism sectors. He is currently the UK commercial specialist for a Nasdaq-listed technology services company, and he holds several board and advisory positions, including commercial director for the Dumfries Tattoo
