Ron is a born and bred, proud Glaswegian. A Glasgow Man. His proud claim is that he spent forty years in public service —
While in Govan he was a founding member of the then South Side Business Club which has transmogrified over the years into the Glasgow South Business Club and now the Glasgow Business Club. Ron looks forward to the day when the organisation becomes the Greater Glasgow Business Club before claiming its rightful designation as the Central Scotland Business Club and taking a seat in the United Nations.
For the past
Now retired, Ron speaks on current affairs across Scotland, is popular with book clubs and is in demand as a speaker around Burns Night every year.
Ron has four sons and lives with his wife, Jean in the leafy suburbs of Glasgow — the city he loves.
