Energy trade association the Energy Industries Council (EIC) has today announced the appointment of Hugh Saville as chairman.

Saville, who has operated as managing director of Minster International Business Development Limited since 1998, will replace Paul Mitchell.

Mitchell has served as chairman since 2012.

Saville reportedly brings over 40 years’ experience in international sales and business experience having advised manufactures in the UK, Europe, Asia and the US.

Commenting on his new post Hugh Saville said: “It’s an honour to have been offered this position during this exciting period of growth for the organisation. We’ve recently launched a new operations and maintenance database, EICAssetMap, 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.”

Stuart Broadley, EIC CEO, said: “With more than 40 years of industry experience the EIC Board is in safe hands with Hugh. He’s one of the UK energy industry’s biggest supporters and is committed to helping our members develop their businesses.

“I’d also like to say a huge thank you to Paul Mitchell for his hard work, leadership and generosity over the last five years. During what has been a very challenging period for the industry the EIC has actually managed to grow, in no small measure thanks to Paul.

“On behalf of the EIC I wish him all the best for his well-earned retirement from the EIC.”
