TWMA Appoints New HR Director

(Press Release)
Tuesday, August 21, 2012
Andy Porter, HR Director

TWMA has announced the appointment of Andy Porter, HR director for the company.

Mr Porter joins the company, a provider of specialised services for the international onshore and offshore oil and gas industry, as a part of its wider growth strategy, and follows expansion of the company’s services in Europe, North America, the Middle East and North Africa.

This is one of several senior appointments planned as demand for TWMA’s specialised solutions continues to increase across the globe, with operators recognising the benefits of treating wastes at source with an all-encompassing cradle to grave package.

Mr Porter has more than 30 years of experience in operational and strategic HR management and has held senior roles in a wide range of industries including oil and gas, telecommunications and professional services.  He has been based in Aberdeen, London and the Republic of Ireland, always within a “growth environment” and for organisations with an international focus.

With an in-depth knowledge of working in internationally-focussed organisations across multiple sites, he is a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development, and has an Honours Degree in psychology.

Mr Porter said: “The real attraction to TWMA is that it is poised for tremendous global growth  -- both in terms of its physical size and its geographic reach.

“As HR director, it’s very much my responsibility to facilitate that growth, and to ensure that the people who make up the business are properly supported and enabled to help the organisation achieve its goals. TWMA is rapidly evolving and being on the ground to play a role in that evolution is really exciting.”

Mr Porter said the global skills shortage affecting the energy industry provided both challenges and opportunities.

He added: “There is no single or simple solution for overcoming the skills shortage that the energy industry is facing, although I believe looking outwith the traditional hunting grounds is a route that is being increasingly recognised by those working in the energy sector.

“Given the enormous challenges facing many professions – including the fishing industry and the military – there is a highly-skilled and dedicated workforce out there that is at risk of being overlooked.

“Looking to our junior staff is also an important part of the equation, to develop their skills and equip them for more senior roles, rather than automatically searching for external candidates with related experience.”

Mr Porter said he was looking forward to supporting TWMA’s efforts to bring their cost effective solutions to an increasingly global audience, including integrated solutions for the handling and treatment of drill cuttings and associated oil industry materials.

Using state-of-the-art technology, by-products of drilling operations are recovered, recycled and reused, significantly reducing operator costs and environmental impacts.
