The Energy Industries Council (EIC), the leading trade association for UK companies that supply goods and services to the energy industries worldwide, is delighted to announce that Claire Miller has been appointed CEO of the EIC.
Claire, who will be based in the EIC’s London office, will be responsible for providing leadership and strategic direction to ensure continued, consistent promotion of members’ interests and the EIC’s reputation as the leading trade association for the energy industry.
Claire joined the EIC in January 1996 as Membership Director when 185 companies were in membership and by 2000 had established a full Membership team. Membership has since continued to grow to its current level of 686 UK companies.
Following this period of growth in both membership and services, Claire became Director of UK Operations in 2012, overseeing the burgeoning UK, National and Overseas Events, Training, Membership and Marketing departments.
Claire’s achievements since joining the EIC in 1996 include exponential growth in the EIC’s membership, supporting the organisation’s expansion into new global markets, the introduction of the highly successful EIC Connect share fair events, the three-fold growth of the business event and training programmes and improved member engagement through increased networking and communication activity.
Said Paul Mitchell, Chairman of the EIC,“The appointment of Claire Miller as CEO of the EIC was a unanimous decision on the part of the EIC Board. Claire has been dedicated to successfully serving the interests of the EIC and its members for over 16 years, and has been central to a marked transformation in the organisation in recent years. Claire is in a really good position to further build on the excellent range of services offered by the EIC. I am confident that members’ interests will be at the heart of everything that Claire and her team do.”
