Rothwell has significant recruitment experience in the energy sector and also possesses local knowledge, having spent 16 years with Michael Page, including 13 years in the USA.
Along with sitting on the board of the British American Business Council, he is actively involved with the American Petroleum Institute, UK Trade & Industry, Scottish Development International and Young Professionals in Energy.
Launched in 2007, Petroplan’s Houston office currently employs six consultants. Under Rothwell’s leadership, the branch will establish three new teams in contract, permanent and commercial recruitment.
“Huw’s appointment is an important milestone for Petroplan and marks the start of a significant investment in the Houston market,” says Andrew Speers, managing director of Petroplan.
“There is great opportunity to be had in the world’s energy capital. Huw’s local knowledge, experience of growing teams and success in launching new service offerings make him the perfect candidate for helping Petroplan realise its potential.”
