Glasgow School of Art has lost another executive after the finance director resigned.

Alastair Milloy is the latest senior figure to leave the school, which is facing criticism on several fronts over its stewardship of the iconic Charles Rennie Mackintosh building.

His resignation follows an exodus of 70 staff from the school since a second devastating fire last year. Forty have resigned and another 30 made redundant.

Milloy, 50, resigned as company secretary of the art school on August 31, according to official documents at Companies House, the government’s register of businesses.

His resignation also came the day before The Sunday Post published the contents of emails showing art school director Tom Inns was forced to leave work against his will by chair Muriel Gray.

It is understood that Milloy, who started work at the art school in 2016, has not been at his desk since the end of last year.

Glasgow School of Art board minutes also indicate that he has not attended a board meeting since December.

Politicians have called for a public inquiry into the management of the school board and two fires at The Mack building in four years.

Last month, we revealed millions of pounds donated to the school after the first fire were used to fund the expansion of the art school’s estate after insurance covered the cost of restoring the building.

Sandra White, MSP for Glasgow Kelvin, said: “The finances of the art school have to be part of a public inquiry and the board has to be held to account.

“It is shrouded in secrecy and it is high time a spotlight is shone on it.”

Seventy staff have left the Glasgow School of Art since the second fire in June last year.

Six have signed confidentiality agreements while payoffs to departing staff total £210,000.

Staff have privately complained of bullying and a lack of leadership from the art school board.

When approached by The Sunday Post, Milloy declined to comment.

Glasgow School of Art also refused to discuss the reason for his resignation.

A spokesperson said: “We can’t comment on specific circumstances relating to individual members of staff, past or present.”
