Ferguson is one of three finalists for the Rising Star Award, who will go forward to the Northern Star Business Awards ceremony on the 25th September.

Ferguson started his recruitment career in 2006, joining Eden Scott in 2009 to establish the commercial team in Aberdeen. In just 5 years, he has risen from Consultant to Director Level, contributing extensively to the firm’s annual £15 million turnover and has a near 0% staff turnover rate in the past 5 years.

Ferguson is the grandson of the late Tayside figurehead and business leader James Clarke Macfarlane CBE, and shares his grandfather’s passion for business. In a short space of time, he has built solid relationships in Aberdeen and is a respected professional within the North East business community.

Commenting on his nomination, Ferguson said: “I am absolutely delighted to be nominated for this prestigious award. I would like to thank the team at the Aberdeen and Grampian Chamber of Commerce for shortlisting me and my colleagues at Eden Scott for supporting me in my career aspirations.”

Managing Director, James Milne commented: “The North East is home to some of the brightest and most innovative talent in the country which makes this nomination a fantastic achievement for Andrew. Since joining our business in 2009, Andrew has made a massive contribution to Eden Scott and is most definitely one of the region’s Rising Stars.”

Andrew is the youngest Director at Eden Scott, a title that was awarded in April 2014 in recognition of the positive impact he has had on the business.
