The campaign for Scottish independence has announced its team of executive directors.
Yes Scotland has made five senior appointments as the organisation's campaign gathers pace ahead of the 2014 referendum.
Former RBS business manager Jacqueline Caldwell joins as operations director, while Susan Stewart, who was appointed the first diplomat in charge of Scottish affairs at the British Embassy in Washington DC, joins as director of communications.
Former SNP MSP Shirley-Anne Somerville has been appointed as director of communities, with Stan Blackley, former chief executive of Friends of the Earth Scotland, as her deputy.
Ian Dommett, a senior government, industry and charities adviser, joins as director of marketing. Mr Dommett worked on the marketing strategy for the SNP prior to the party's win in the Scottish elections last year.
Yes Scotland's chief executive, Blair Jenkins said: "I said when I took on this role that I wanted a team of the highest calibre to match such an important and historic event in Scotland's future direction. I can say with certainty that with these appointments this goal has been achieved.
"I am thrilled and delighted to welcome aboard Jacqui, Susan, Shirley-Anne, Ian and Stan, marking another major step in building the country's largest ever community-based campaign.
"Each one of them has a proven track record in his or her field of expertise and I am confident that with their input and commitment we can deliver a Yes vote in 2014."
Yes Scotland was launched in May as a campaign group for a yes vote at the independence referendum.
The group has already announced the membership of its advisory board, which includes former MP Dennis Canavan as chairman and Sir George Mathewson, former chairman of the Royal Bank of Scotland, as honorary vice-president.
