Share this post

It is with mixed emotions that the Spey Fishery Board announces the departure of Roger Knight, our esteemed Director, after over 18 years of dedicated service. Roger joined us from the United Nations and Foreign Office, bringing with him a wealth of experience and a unique set of diplomatic skills that have been invaluable to our organisation.

During his tenure, Roger has been instrumental in revolutionising the operations of the Spey Fishery Board, guiding us into the 21st century with innovative strategies and a forward-thinking approach. His leadership has not only modernised our practices but also strengthened our commitment to the river, its wildlife, and the surrounding communities.

Roger’s vision and tireless efforts have significantly contributed to the progress and success of the Spey Fishery Board. His ability to navigate complex challenges and foster collaboration has left an indelible mark on our organisation. Under his guidance, we have seen substantial advancements in sustainable fishing practices, habitat restoration projects, and community engagement initiatives.

As we bid farewell to Roger in his role as Director, we are delighted to announce that he will be continuing his dedicated work within the Spey catchment area. Roger will be leading the Spey Catchment Initiative as its Chief Executive. In his new role, he will continue to work on the river, for the river, and deliver projects that will benefit Atlantic salmon and the broader ecosystem.

Roger’s new position at the Spey Catchment Initiative ensures that his vast experience and profound understanding of our river system will remain a driving force in our efforts to protect Atlantic salmon and enhance the Spey. His commitment to delivering projects that benefit Atlantic salmon aligns perfectly with Spey Catchment Initiative’s mission and promises to bring continued positive impact.

We extend our deepest gratitude to Roger for his outstanding contributions and unwavering dedication over the past 18 years. His leadership, vision, and passion for the Spey will be greatly missed at the Spey Fishery Board. However, we look forward to witnessing the continued positive outcomes of his work in his new role.

Thank you, Roger, for your exceptional leadership and service. The Spey Fishery Board and the entire Spey catchment community wish you all the best in your future endeavours.
