The Section Committee

Tommy Knott, North West Section Chair

NW - Tommy Knott website

Tommy has more than 15 years' experience of working in a management role within the gas industry, initially working for Fusion Provida as a Depot Manager and gas specialist. Following his move to the Future Energy Group in 2016, as Plant and Fleet Manager, he has been heavily involved in improving the group's supply chain.

Following from his year as Chair in 2017-18 Tommy is continuing in the role for 2018-19. This year Tommy and the North West committee are planning a series of events ranging from technical paper evenings with keynote speakers to industry site visits across the region. The ever popular Section Christmas lunch is set to take place on 12 December and is a great opportunity to network with colleagues across the industry.

As part of his year as Chair Tommy wants to focus on encouraging more people to join the Section committee, helping them to plan exciting and interesting events in their area.
