The Scotsman - - Comment -

SEN­ERGy, the Aberdeen-based en­ergy ser­vices com­pany, kicks off a se­ries of high-pro­file ap­point­ments by nam­ing

Øys­tein Roti as man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of its Nor­we­gian arm.

Roti – who founded Nor­we­gian firms 4Sea En­ergy and oro­com – is a for­mer vicepres­i­dent of Dong En­ergy, and, in his new role, will work with clients in­clud­ing Cen­trica, GDF Suez, Sta­toil and Tal­is­man. Sen­ergy chief ex­ec­u­tive

James McCal­lum said: “The sig­nif­i­cant rate of growth in Nor­way is largely at­trib­uted to our niche and spe­cial­ist oil and gas ser­vices. It is also in line with Sen­ergy’s am­bi­tious tar­get for fu­ture global growth, as we fo­cus on in­creas­ing our turnover from £80m to £300m over the next five years.” Also on the move is

Doug Baikie, who HSBC has ap­pointed as head of cor­po­rate bank­ing for Scot­land.

Baikie – who trans­fers from his cur­rent role as global re­la­tion­ship man­ager – will re­place Irene Grant, who is mov­ing within the bank to the po­si­tion of se­nior vicepres­i­dent cor­po­rate bank­ing in Cal­i­for­nia.

Grant, who es­tab­lished the Scot­tish cor­po­rate bank­ing team in 2004, will leave in Septem­ber to man­age cor­po­rate bank­ing teams in Los An­ge­les and San Fran­cisco. In other changes to the cor­po­rate bank­ing di­vi­sion, Tim Lowry joins as se­nior man­ager, trade and sup­ply chain, based within HSBC’s Glas­gow com­mer­cial cen­tre.

Scot­tish Wid­ows In­vest­ment Part­ner­ship (Swip) is also mak­ing an in­ter­nal pro­mo­tion, with An­drew Novem­ber step­ping up to be­come di­rec­tor of eq­ui­ties.

Novem­ber was Swip’s joint chief in­vest­ment of­fi­cer for six years be­fore over­see­ing the cre­ation of the firm’s in­vest­ment so­lu­tions team.

Per­haps some of these se­nior ap­point­ments will be on the radar of Paul Pin­son, who is set­ting up a third Scot­tish branch of Vistage, the in­ter­na­tional chief ex­ec­u­tives’ mem­ber­ship or­gan­i­sa­tion.

Pin­son – who was pre­vi­ously chief ex­ec­u­tive of in­ter­na­tional the­atre com­pany Boil­er­house and who runs Brightspace, a con­sul­tancy firm – says: “I would liken be­ing a Vistage mem­ber to hav­ing a team of 12 non-ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tors in the room – help­ing you to elim­i­nate any blind spots.”
