INEOS taps Brian Gilvary to head new energy venture
INEOS announced that it is forming a new group within the company called INEOS Energy. INEOS also announced that the new INEOS Energy venture will be led by Brian Gilvary.
This exciting new business will incorporate all of the existing INEOS Oil & Gas assets and will also enable INEOS to become a powerful force in the coming energy transition.
Brian Gilvary will be executive chairman of the new group, bringing a wealth of experience to the role after a long career in BP. He was recently awarded a lifetime achievement award by the Energy Council for his outstanding contribution to the industry
“We are delighted that someone of Brian’s calibre has agreed to join us to head up this exciting new venture at a time of significant transformation in the energy industry. We are determined that INEOS will be at the forefront of the industry and that Brian will provide the experience and leadership to achieve that aim,” Jim Ratcliffe, INEOS chairman said.
Gilvary joins INEOS after 34 years in BP where he was chief financial officer from 2012 until his retirement in June 2020. During his time with BP, he held several senior financial and commercial roles, including member of the Board of TNK-BP, chief executive of BP’s commodity trading division and commercial director of the downstream division.
In addition to his new role in INEOS, Gilvary is currently a non-executive director of Barclays plc, Air Liquide S.A. and a trustee of the Royal Navy Royal Marines Charity.
“I am delighted to be asked to join INEOS and chair the new INEOS Energy venture at a time of tremendous change within our industry. I believe very strongly that the combination of the assets and technologies that INEOS owns, along with their drive and determination to get things done means the company can play a leading role in the coming energy transition,” Gilvary said.
