Mike Loggie, Chief Executive of Aberdeen-based Saltire Energy, has been shortlisted as a regional finalist in the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year Awards 2015.

Winners will be announced on 25 June. The judging criteria will include entrepreneurial spirit, innovation, personal integrity and strategic direction.

Loggie established Saltire Energy, a supplier of drilling tools to the offshore oil and gas industry, in 1986 and has since grown it into a group of three highly successful subsidiaries.

Over the past three years, the company’s turnover figures have increased by 68% and it has grown its on-the-ground presence in Australia, Africa, Europe, the Middle East and the Far East as a result of client demand.

Last month, Saltire Energy was named one of the 1,000 most inspiring companies in the UK by the London Stock Exchange, which followed its listings on The Sunday Times Fast Track 100 Ones to Watch and The Sunday Times Profit Track 100 league tables in 2014.

Loggie also set up the Saltire in the Community Programme in 2008 to support a range of local and international projects, primarily helping disadvantaged young people. The company has also made donations to local charity, Befriend a Child, Aberdeen University and the Aberdeen Sports Village Aquatics Centre.
