Aberdeenshire oil service firm Saltire Energy has promoted Craig Mitchell to the role of business development director.
He joins a boardroom team including chief executive Mike Loggie, managing director Gary Leslie and operations director Peter Gray.
Mr Mitchell joined Portlethen-based Saltire in 2003 as a rentals coordinator before moving into the role of business development manager two years later.
His career also includes five years with the Royal Air Force and a spell focused on offshore oil and gas seismic work.
Saltire said its new director would continue to focus on the firm’s expansion, both in the UK and internationally, in his new role.
Mr Mitchell also oversees rental contracts and the firm’s bespoke integrated management system. Saltire said he had already been instrumental in the company achieving its industry-leading quality, health, safety and environment management standards.
