UK oil and gas veteran Hugh Saville has been appointed as new chairman of the board of directors at the Energy Industries Council.
A board member since 2004 and a previous chairman of the council’s finance committee, Saville takes over from Paul Mitchell, who has stood down after five years as chairman.
The EIC – which celebrates its 75th anniversary this year – is the leading UK trade association providing dedicated services to help members understand, identify and pursue business opportunities globally. It is a not-for-profit organisation with a membership of over 650 UK-registered companies.
Saville brings over 40 years of international sales and business development experience in oil and gas equipment supply to his new post. He has been the Managing Director of Minster International Business Development Limited since 1998, advising and supporting a range of manufacturers in the UK, Europe, Asia and the US.
He said: ‘It’s an honour to have been offered this position during this exciting period of growth for the EIC.
“We’ve recently launched a new operations and maintenance database – the EIC Asset Map – covering all major UK assets across all energy sectors, while 2018 will see us take our flagship EIC Connect events around the globe, holding these in the UAE, UK, US, Malaysia and Vietnam – along with 130 other events worldwide during the year.’
