Edinburgh glamping site design consultancy appoints first MD

Tom Campbell

EDINBURGH-based glamping site design consultancy Glampitect has appointed North Coast 500 founder and chair Tom Campbell as its first MD after he stepped down from that role last month.

The move has been described as ‘another significant step’ for the business, which has enjoyed rapid growth since its formation in 2019.

Since its inception three years ago, Glampitect has expanded into Dubai and recently established a North American operation. The business turned over £1 million for the first time last year and founder Calum MacLeod says the arrival of Tom Campbell puts the business in the ‘perfect position’ to continue its upward trajectory.

He said, “This is a new role within our business structure. Demand has dictated we bring in someone with the necessary experience and I’m delighted to have Tom on board with us. His vision, knowledge, and innovative thinking will be a significant asset to Glampitect as we develop and grow the business.”

Tom Campbell added, “I am delighted to have been asked by the young entrepreneur, Calum MacLeod, to join Glampitect as managing director to deliver the opportunities for growth in an industry that is making significant progress in creating alternative accommodation experiences for the visitor. This is a relatively new sector and industry, and I will be overseeing the consolidation and expansion of the business with the development of innovative solutions and partnerships across the UK.”
