Ross Macgregor, Spean Bridge entrepreneur tells his tale
Born a highlander, Ross Macgregor completed his schooling in Lochaber High school and then went on to Perth College to study Tourism and Business Studies. Throughout his childhood and during his years of study, Ross remained an avid sportsman by playing golf, shinty and rugby. After achieving his HND, young Ross Macgregor Spean Bridge golf and rugby club member pursued a career as a stock broker and worked in an advisory capacity for close to a decade. His diligence soon led to promotion and after gaining some experience, Macgregor passed his securities and regulations exam and became a qualified stock broker. He worked in this capacity in Scotland and England, with his work often taking him abroad where he would meet clients and conduct seminars. He was instrumental in assisting clients with portfolio management.
Many individuals view the world through rose tinted glasses. Ross Macgregor prefers to look at the world squarely and without painting unrealistic pictures. When the global ecological crisis became apparent in the media some years ago, Ross started becoming interested in what was happening and upon further investigation he realised that we are heading for disaster. Always a practical individual, Ross has not ever been prone to panic. Instead, he decided that he would do his level best to ensure that all our future generations are assured of continued survival on earth. Macgregor felt so strongly about this that he had a complete overhaul of his career; moving into on occupation with focus on environmental education and improvement. He started to work in this industry in the year 2008 and is currently the general manager at H & R energy.
Ross Macgregor, Spean Bridge golfer extraordinaire certainly knows how to swing a club
This hard working young business man is as much of a success in the business world as on the great variety of sporting environments he frequents. With a great many accolades behind his name like prizes for clay pigeon shooting and prizes for the biggest fish caught at competitions, Ross is a tremendous achiever in sport. Locals know him as; Ross Macgregor, Spean Bridge's shinty pro. For those (like me) who have not previously heard of the game, shinty is a very popular Scottish team game played with sticks and a ball. More similar to the Irish game called hurling than to field hockey, shinty is considered to be quite dangerous as it allows a lot more contact than what the better known sport, field hockey does. Shinty is the forebear to ice hockey as Scottish immigrants in Canada played shinty on ice. To this day, informal games of ice hockey are known as shinny. Most certainly an authority at this fun-fuelled game, Ross has won medals in both the McBain and Mactavish cups.
Seemingly a pro, on and off the field, this young businessman is most certainly somebody to keep an eye out for in the future of maintainable power and green strategies.
