A leading provider of international logistics solutions to the oil and gas sector has strengthened its commercial team with the appointment of an experienced industry professional.
Aberdeen-based Petrasco has appointed Fiona Hodge as client solutions pricing specialist. With more than 25 years’ experience in the logistics market, Fiona has taken on the newly-created role to help support the company’s long-term growth strategy.
Fiona, originally from Troon, has previously held key roles for various logistics firms, including time spent working in Houston. She has lived and worked in the Granite City for most of the past 22 years; gaining valuable insight into oil and gas businesses over that period and developing key customer service and account management skills.
Commenting on the new role, Fiona said: “I’m pleased to have joined a company that is forward-thinking in its approach to customer relationships and committed to delivering a high-quality and reliable service to clients based in the North Sea and further afield.
“During my career I have developed an array of knowledge, across all aspects of logistics and freight forwarding activity, and look forward to getting to know our clients better to help add value to their operations.”
Stuart Webster, regional manager at Petrasco, added: “We are pleased to welcome Fiona on board. She has already hit the ground running and, given her level of knowledge and track-record to date, I have no doubt that she will prove to be a genuine asset to the business.
“It remains a highly competitive market but, with the level of knowledge and expertise possessed by the team here at Petrasco, we are confident of meeting our growth objectives for the year ahead.”
