2018 will doubtless offer many opportunities as well as challenges for businesses operating in North-East Fife.

Many of the factors, good and bad, influencing businesses will come from outside the area, but others will come from or be influenced by Fife Council, BID St Andrews and the University of St Andrews.

We’ve gathered together senior managers from each of those organisations to tell attendees what they believe 2018 will and may hold for St Andrews and North-East Fife that will affect businesses.



Keith Winter, Executive Director of Enterprise & Environment, Fife Council

Keith Winter has been Executive Director of Enterprise & Environment (Environment, Enterprise and Communities before 2016) at Fife Council since July 2013. As well as leading a range of council services, he holds a number of corporate roles overseeing affordable housing delivery, City Deal processes and the recent MoD basing review consequences for Fife.

Keith has a BSc (Hons) in Town and Regional Planning from the University of Dundee and an MBA from the University of Abertay, Dundee, and has previously held planning and development posts in local authorities from Birmingham, Coventry and Burnley to South Tyneside and Dundee.
