F: 0131-653-2592

Alastair has worked in the Family business since 1988 (with the exception of a 4 year period working in the U.S.A.), working part time through the final 2 years of school and 4 years of university, finally becoming full time in 1998 upon his return from the US.

He became Managing Director in 2003, taking over from his Father, Jim Raitt, who became a Consultant at that point.

Under Alastair’s tenure, the company has grown year on year, survived the recession, and expanded the range of work undertaken and the in-house scope of the workforce.

As well as working in the company day to day, Alastair is always looking for further business growth opportunities for HMR, whether they be D&B, JV or property portfolio expansion.
