EIC Takes On New Chairman

The Energy Industries Council (EIC) has announced the appointment of Hugh Saville as the new chairman of its board of directors.

A member of the EIC board since 2004, and a previous chairman of its finance committee, Saville takes over from Paul Mitchell who served as chairman of the board for the past five years.

Saville brings over 40 years of international sales and business development experience in oil and gas equipment supply to his new post. He has been the managing director of Minster International Business Development Limited since 1998.

“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,” EIC CEO Stuart Broadley said in an organization statement.

“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,” he added.

Commenting on his new post, Hugh Saville said it was an honour to have been offered the position during an exciting period of growth for the organization.

Established in 1943, the EIC is a trade association for companies working in global energy industries. Member companies supply goods and services across the oil and gas, power, nuclear and renewable sectors.
