Empowering female leaders at Scullion LAW continues with the promotion of Shanna McDiarmid’s to Director of Operations and Performance.

On January 1, 2023, Shanna McDiarmid was named Director of Operations and Performance. Shanna has spent the last 17 years at the law firm ensuring the success of the multi-award-winning team.

She will continue to do so by supporting, coaching, and holding the team accountable as they work to achieve the goal of making Scullion LAW the top legal service provider in the Scottish legal market by December 2025.

This appointment marks a new era in Scullion LAW’s history with over half the board now made up of talented women. The appointment of Shanna McDiarmid was preceded by the 2022 appointments of Gemma Miller and Diana McLeish as Directors.

Nicholas Scullion, Managing Director, had no shortage of words to describe the values and strengths Shanna has brought to the Scullion LAW family. He praised Shanna’s support as a major factor in the early successes of the firm.

“My first hire was Shanna McDiarmid and I know that without her constant help, support, and kindness I would not have been able to achieve my goals. It has been an honour to coach her and watch her develop skills and confidence over the years and she has been invaluable. We are incredibly proud of Shanna and her achievements, and we all look forward to a great year ahead.”

From humble beginnings as an office junior, Shanna learnt and adapted the company’s IT before becoming PA to Nicholas Scullion, providing a greater understanding of the company’s needs and areas for improvement.

Having gained more knowledge and experience, she became Scullion LAW’s Practice Manager. And in 2015, she was promoted to the position of Executive Director due to her dedication and determination.

“I am honoured to be given this opportunity. The team are fantastic to work with and it’s easy to take on a new challenge when you love where you work. I very much look forward to the future and what it will bring.”
