Morton Dunlop

Senior Account Manager - Scotland

Morton is a senior account manager with a portfolio broadly covering enterprise, housing, and social security. He is also responsible for the allocation of committees, legislation and petitions across the team. Having joined Newsdirect Scotland in August 2019, Morton has covered a range of party conferences and elections. Last session, he was tasked with covering the inquiry into the Scottish Government’s handling of harassment complaints. Originally from Dunblane, Morton studied International Relations & Politics at the University of Dundee, before unwittingly following in Kirsty’s footsteps by working at Press Data as a production editor.

Outside of work, Morton has a love-hate relationship with running (depending on how recently he last ran a marathon). He is a big football fan, is always open to podcast, film and tv recommendations, and is looking forward to getting back to going to gigs.
