Kenneth Gibson has been the MSP for Cunninghame North since 2007.
For the Parliamentary term 2021-2026, he was returned as the Convener of the Scottish Parliament’s Finance and Public Administration (FPA) Committee. He also serves as Co-Convener of the Cross-Party Group on Life Sciences.
Kenneth was born in Paisley in 1961, educated at Bellahouston Academy and at the University of Stirling, where he graduated with a BA in Economics.
During his years in Parliament, Kenneth has successfully campaigned for Scottish Government investment in the Dalry Bypass, Den Realignment, ferries and the introduction of Road Equivalent Tariff, the West of Scotland Accredited Endometriosis Unit which opened in April 2019, and a variety of other issues.
However, he spends the majority of his time in the constituency, dealing with cases and interacting with constituents and community groups.
Having previously served as the only SNP Councillor in Glasgow from 1992-1999, he left his commercial career completely for a lifetime of public service when he was elected as an MSP for Glasgow in 1999.
Kenneth is a father of three and has been resident in Kilbirnie since 2006 with his wife Patricia.
