SIE Icon


In Memory of Tom McGuire

RobertBrady / Freelance / SIE / April 2014

It is with great sadness that we announce the recent passing of Tom McGuire, a former member of the SIE team, after a short illness.

Tom joined SIE as a Business and Innovation Advisor in 2010, initially just for one year as he was planning to participate in a major leg of the Clipper round the world yacht race. He very quickly became indispensable, and we were delighted that he returned to us after his amazing adventure and stayed with us for nearly nine years. Tom loved working with SIE’s entrepreneurial young clients, supporting and challenging them to fulfil their remarkable potential. He truly made an impact on their lives, as all would testify, and his legacy will live on in all of them.

We were so fortunate to have him as part of the team, until he left Scotland in early 2019 to pursue a new adventure in Dubai with his wife Gilly. Our thoughts are with her and the girls as they navigate their way through this.

Gilly is planning an online celebration of Tom’s life which she would like to share with all those who knew him. If you would like to be notified it about it, please contact our CEO Fiona Godsman on and she will email you once we have the details.
