Stuart Crawford is a former army officer and one of Scotland’s senior political consultants and lobbyists. He is also an experienced freelance journalist, media commentator and public speaker.
After a 20-year career in the Royal Tank Regiment during which he rose to the rank of Lieutenant Colonel and saw action in the first Gulf War, Stuart left the army in 1999 and founded Stuart Crawford Associates, an independent political consultancy based in Edinburgh.
He has since then advised a broad spectrum of corporate, individual and charitable clients on Scottish politics.
He has also written for most of the Scottish print media and also many of the UK-based major newspapers, mainly on defence and political matters. He appears regularly on television and radio - including Newsnight Scotland and Politics Today.
