We are pleased to announce that partner Paul Motion has become the new Chairman of RGDP (Really Good Data Protection). A Solicitor Advocate and an accredited specialist in freedom of information and data protection law, Paul is one of only two such specialists in the private practice legal sector in Scotland.
In the last 3 years, as a Board member, Paul has helped oversee the establishment and growth of this Data Protection Officer (DPO) services provider, including steering RGDP through the current pandemic during which time RGDP’s customer numbers have continued to rise.
Completing the changes, Alastair Dunn becomes an RGDP Board member. Alastair is a highly experienced partner of BTO specialising in corporate and commercial law. He acts for a range of clients from national and international organisations, owner-managed companies, entrepreneurs, funders, shareholder groups and investors.
Paul Motion commented:
“I am delighted to assume the role of RGDP’s Chairman. RGDP provides DPO services to organisations that choose to outsource their data protection requirements and a number of organisations have turned to RGDP since the start of the Covid pandemic, recognising that it provides a very cost-effective solution to their data protection requirements. I am pleased to report that the company services a growing and diverse range of organisations including housing associations, airports, legal firms, public bodies in the sporting and business sectors, charities and more.”
RGDP’s General Manager, Mark Chynoweth, said:
“With data protection rightly becoming an increasingly important and essential aspect of an organisation’s thinking, and with the data protection landscape continuing to evolve following the UK’s departure from the EU, RGDP’s customers can remain assured that our range of DPO services and our growing and highly experienced team will remain one-step ahead”.
