Neil Benny

I am the Councillor for Stirling West and hail originally from the St Ninians area of Stirling.  I am 32 and currently work as a Geographical Information Services consultant for a local company.  I attended Stirling High School and Edinburgh University, graduating with an MA in Politics and Economic History.  I am currently studying towards an MSC in GIS.  I am a keen motorcyclist - driving a Harley Davidson 883 sportster and an am enthusiastic, if untalented, musician - keenly playing guitar, violin and piano.  Before being elected as a Councillor in 2007, I had a career in retail management, working in specialist retail for a major national supermarket chain.  I also served as Vice-President of Edinburgh University Union in 2003.  During that time I developed a love of craft beer and whisky which I still enjoy to this day.   I am now Deputy Leader of Stirling Council and Chairman of the Finance and Economy Committee. I also serve as a Baillie and on a number of other committees and outside companies.
