Energy North – the Dingwall-based energy industry supply train trade association – is looking to recruit a new chief executive.

Ian Couper, the outgoing incumbent is standing down this summer after eight-years at the helm during which the association’s membership grew from 30 companies to more than 200.

Three new directors – David Maclennan (Pat Munro, Alness), Donald Nicholson (Western Isles Construction Group) and Jason Schofield (Green Marine) – have joined Board and Energy North has also recently appointed a new business development manager and an events assistant.

Couper said: “Last year was exceptionally busy for us, delivering more events than ever before. And through a series of showcases and networking platforms, we have significantly increased awareness of the excellent energy assets and supply-chain capabilities in northern Scotland.”
