Diageo has announced a £150 million investment over three years to transform its Scotch whisky visitor experience.
Commenting on this announcement, Marie Macklin CBE, Founder and Director of the HALO Kilmarnock said: “This morning I took a phone call from the Chairman of Diageo Scotland, David Cutter. Kilmarnock will forever be the home town of our Johnnie Walker and I welcome Diageo’s proposals for a scholarship and mentoring programme for young entrepreneurs in Kilmarnock.
“This lies at the heart of our own vision for the HALO Kilmarnock which is about creating future generations of entrepreneurs in a digital world, and I look forward to discussing with David the role that the HALO will play in their proposals and Diageo’s further support.”
