Mike Loggie, Chief Executive of Saltire Energy – a supplier of drilling tools to the offshore oil and gas industry – has been announced as the overall winner of the EY Scotland Entrepreneur of the Year Awards 2015.
Since establishing Saltire Energy in 1986, Mike has grown the company into a group of three highly successful subsidiaries.
Over the past three years, the Portlethen-based company’s turnover figures have increased by 68%, with its on-the-ground presence in Australia, Africa, Europe, the Middle East and the Far East growing as a result of client demand.
Loggie said: “Since I established the company in 1986 and my main driving force behind its success is a commitment to delivering the very highest standard of service possible. As our international presence and product offering has grown, so has our reputation for delivering excellence in customer service.
“I have built up a strong team of experienced industry professionals over the years, and they have supported me in growing the business to the international service company it is today. I am delighted with this achievement, and I am looking forward to participating in the national stage of the EY Entrepreneur of the Year Awards.”
Loggie will represent Scotland at the UK finals of the competition in October.
