BTA (Bruce Tait Associates) are delighted to be working with Carnegie Dunfermline and Hero Fund Trust in their search for a Chief Executive.
Andrew Carnegie’s story is one of rags to riches. Born in Dunfermline in 1835 to a father who was a handloom weaver, the arrival of the power loom had a devastating impact on this trade, causing the Carnegies to immigrate to the United States in 1848. Young Andrew began work at age 12 as a bobbin boy in a cotton factory but educated himself by reading and writing and attending night school. Through great entrepreneurial acumen, he was to become one of the wealthiest men in America.
Carnegie wrote frequently about political and social matters, and his most famous article, “Wealth,” published in 1889, outlined what came to be called the Gospel of Wealth. This doctrine held that a man who accumulates great wealth has a duty to use his surplus wealth for “the improvement of mankind” in philanthropic causes. A “man who dies rich dies disgraced.”
Carnegie is one of the world’s most renowned philanthropists. His charitable giving benefitted people across the world in his lifetime and continues to do so today in a myriad of ways.
A rare opportunity has arisen to lead the Carnegie Dunfermline and Hero Fund Trusts. This comprises the Carnegie Dunfermline Trust, which gives grants to local causes and which also runs the world famous Carnegie Birthplace Museum, as well as the Hero Fund Trust. This operates across the UK and recognises civilian heroes by providing long term financial and other support for them and/or their families.
