A founder member of Melrose-based Tweed Renaissance Investors (Tri Cap) has retired from the organisation.
Kelso man Rob Dick was one of ten independent Borders’ businessmen who set up the syndicate in 2004. He retired as a director this month, having stood down as the organisation’s chairman of 13 years in February. He was made honorary life president and presented with the brass bell, which he had used to call order at meetings, mounted and inscribed. A graduate of Cambridge University and with a background in farming, Rob helped grow Tri Cap into one of Scotland’s most active business syndicates with over 60 investors.
He said: “I have a lifelong attachment to the Scottish Borders and to its business community. Tri Cap is a vehicle which melds my commitment to this part of the world while also providing tangible benefit to entrepreneurs.”
His successor as chairman Jamie Andrew added: “Rob will be a difficult act to follow. He has built Tri Cap into one of the most respected angel syndicates in Scotland with a varied portfolio of invested companies.” “I am delighted that Rob will remain an active member but from the back benches so to speak.”
