TIE’s ex-spin doctor finds new job
The former head spin doctor at tram firm TIE has secured a new job.
Mandy Haeburn-Little, who was appointed director of communications at TIE in June 2009 but left earlier this year, has become director of the Scottish Business Crime Centre (SBCC). The group is a non-profit-making organisation created in 1996 to establish a partnership approach between the police, business community and Scottish Government.
In a statement, the SBCC said: “Mandy has worked in a range of companies including Standard Life, the water authority and Edinburgh Trams.
“Mandy ran her own business for a seven-year period and also has experience in public, private and charitable sectors.”
The departure of Ms Haeburn-Little, who is thought to have been on a salary band of between £120,000 and £139,000, had provided a further sign that the entire tram project was steadily being moved under the direct control of the council.
