Meet The Trustees: Maxine Eggenberger and Catriona Mackie

We are delighted to announce that we have recently added two new trustees, Maxine Eggenberger and Catriona Mackie, to our board here at Smart Works Edinburgh.

As our resident style expert, Maxine has always been a firm believer that clothing has the power to change lives. To that end, Maxine has over a decade of experience in the journalism and fashion industries, and has held editorial positions at some of the world’s biggest publishing brands, including Look, InStyle, Who What Wear UKand Marie Claire. Originally from Scotland, Maxine relocated to Edinburgh in 2019 and, in tandem with her roles as editor at Hood magazine and contributing editor at Who What Wear UK, she assists Smart Works Edinburgh with communications, marketing, events, and social media. Her most recent project has been providing new and improved content for our social media channels whilst channelling our Smart Works Voice.

Equally as impressive, Catriona is a highly experienced international HR Director, having worked in the power, telecommunications and drinks industries. She has championed inclusivity and diversity with a specific focus on increasing diversity in the manufacturing and supply chain. Her passions and skills extend to people development and coaching, particularly in the context of women in leadership. Catriona has previously been a member of Court for one of Scotland’s top universities and is inspired by the role that education plays in the empowerment of women. Within Smart Works, Catriona is going to be working on our annual fundraising challenge, Cycle for Smart Works, as well as bringing her HR expertise to the board.

Welcome, Maxine and Catriona!
