Tom Johnston Appointed Chairman of Fife Licensed Trade Association

Ronnie Dick, President of Fife Licensed Trade Association, has unveiled Fife lawyer Tom Johnston as the association chairman of the year until 2016. Speaking from The Lomond Hills Hotel in Freuchie, Ronnie said, “the position of chairman of the year is an honorary one. In the past we have usually appointed representatives from the major drinks giants. This time we decided unanimously to appoint Tom Johnston because of his reputation in the licensed trade. Tom is recognised throughout Scotland as an expert in licensing law, and has been advising people in the trade for over 30 years. We are delighted he has agreed to accept the position.”

Tom Johnston responded, “I have been involved with Fife LTA for more years than I care to remember and I was very honoured to receive the invitation. Coincidentally, the appointment coincides with announcement of my retirement from private practice (although I will still be involved with licensing issues). This means I will have a lot more time to devote to the association business. There are many challenges facing licensees just now, and we face yet another set of licensing reforms in the autumn. I will be able to advise on these. I am also fascinated by the practical benefits social media is bringing to business and I will be working closely with the committee. Fife has one of the most vibrant licensed trade associations in the country, and we aim to improve it still further over the next two years.”
