Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre (AECC), the national energy exhibition centre, is seeking to add business expertise to its Board by recruiting three new Non-Executive Board members.
AECC is a world class conference, exhibition and event venue located within the City of Aberdeen. Hosting over 700 events per year, it contributes an average of £60m per annum to the North-East’s economy, and provides a showcase for the leading technologies and research undertaken in the region. The Centre is poised to contribute further to the future growth of the City Region, recently tipped to be one of the key regions in the UK to lead the country out of recession.
Ed Gillespie, AECC’s Chairman said, “We are recruiting three Non-Executive Directors to join our Board, to assist in driving the business forward. This is an exciting opportunity during a challenging time to contribute to the venue’s achievement of its objectives and to realise its full potential.”
Brian Horsburgh, AECC Managing Director added, “We are looking for candidates with experience in the energy sector, conference, exhibition or events industry, finance or academia. These new Board members will play a key role in ensuring that AECC has the resources to continue to attract a wide range of high profile events visited by people from around the world.”
Gordon McIntosh, Director for Enterprise, Planning & Infrastructure at Aberdeen City Council said, “This opportunity provides proposed new Board Members with a real opportunity to use their business leadership and management experience to improve AECC’s operational profitability, whilst ensuring they continue to generate substantial economic added value for the local economy.”
These are unpaid positions involving a time commitment of about 10 days per year. Potential applicants should send their CV and supporting statement in the first instance to:
