The managing director of Imagineering has announced that he will step down from his role this week.

Bill Russell will pass the management of the company on to his fellow director, George Davidson, on January 31.

Imagineering was created in November 2005, but before that it was M & R Associates , and previous to that it was Screenprint Plus (Scotland).

Bill has been with the company for 13 years but at the request of shareholders and the board of directors, he will continue with a small role as consultant to the company and its associates.

The company has grown from strength to strength and has a current employee role of nine at Peterhead’s Seagate after moving from Wilson Street in May 2006.

Speaking to the Buchanie, Bill said: “It’s a wrench leaving something I have had a hand building up but there is a good team of people there to ensure it runs and continues to grow.

“Since I officially retired at 65 in 2002, I have had 14 of the most wonderful years of my life - sign making is an absolutely fantastic way to earn a living.”

He added: “We must have done something right because of the many satisfied clients that we have.”

After leaving his post, Bill will spend more time with his family.
