Gordon ArthurGordon Arthur Biography

Gordon Arthur is the Chief Communications Officer at the Organising Committee for the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games with responsibility for the Communications and Marketing division. He joined the organisation in September 2008 as one of the first members of the team, and is responsible for all external communications and stakeholder engagement as well as the marketing programme in support of the Games. The development, management and activation of all brand assets including the identity, sport pictograms, mascot, and official tartan are all the responsibility of the Division as well as publications and the ‘look of the Games’ programme.

Previously, he was Director of Corporate Affairs at Standard Life, where he sat on the Group Executive and was responsible for all internal and external communications and the communications campaigns that supported the demutualisation and subsequent flotation of the company in July 2006. He left shortly after the flotation to set up his own consultancy business, Roundtable Consultants, through which he advised companies and other organisations on communications and reputational issues, before joining Glasgow 2014 in late 2008.
