Grew up in oil and gas hub Aberdeen
Andrew's interest for the energy industry has been a natural part of his life for years.
"I grew up in Aberdeen in Scotland which is a real oil and gas hub in Northern Europe. My interest for the energy industry has always been there and many of my friends and family members are involved in the oil and gas industry," Andrew says.
A job with influence
"The thing that instantly caught my interest is that the challenges the European energy industry faces are constantly evolving, and the answers to the issues aren't black and white. In addition to understanding the economics of the industry, a broader understanding is needed. Technical, regulatory and political knowledge are all important in order to have the overview needed to be able to understand the complexity of the problems faced by clients.
