The Energy Industries Council—one of the world’s leading energy trade associations and the purveyor of world class industry data, events, and insights—announced today that it has added four new members to its Board of Directors as the EIC continues its drive to help its member companies to achieve their strategic goals.

Ileana Ferber, ExxonMobil’s corporate Local Content Subject Matters Expert, Thuy-Tien Le Guen Dang, ASCO Group’s Sustainability and Marketing Manager, and Sandra Antonovic, Reflex Marine’s Chief Operating Officer, join the board as non-executive directors. Neil Golding, EIC’s Director of Market Intelligence, has been appointed as an executive member of the board.

Commenting on the appointment, EIC Chief Executive Officer Stuart Broadley said, “We are thrilled to welcome Ileana, Thuy-Tien and Sandra as new EIC non-executive directors, bringing their unique skillsets and expertise to help us keep pace with such a fast-changing global energy market and, of course, supporting our strategy to have a gender-balanced board. I’d also like to recognise this moment, as Ileana is our first director to represent an international energy operator on our board.”

He added: “For nearly 80 years, the EIC has been helping its members to diversify and expand into new markets around the world. Our four new directors further broaden and strengthen the already vast wealth of knowledge on our board that will enable us to continue our mission to support the global energy industry in its growth and transition to net-zero.”

The new members of the board have a diverse range of expertise in local content, sustainability, marketing, industry data and analytics, and operations, as well as other insights gained throughout years of experience in the energy industry.

ExxonMobil’s Ileana Ferber said, “Connecting global suppliers with buyers in the oil and gas industry has been one of the roles that I have enjoyed the most in my career. Building suppliers’ capabilities in the energy sector will make markets competitive, and in turn economies will go. This is how I envision my contributions to the EIC from day one.”

Thuy-Tien Le Guen Dang, of ASCO Group, said, “I'm delighted to have been appointed as a Non-Executive Director at the EIC. It is an exciting time for the energy industry and I'm looking forward to supporting the EIC and its members with their growth and sustainable opportunities in the energy sector worldwide.”

EIC’s Neil Golding said: “I am delighted to be appointed as Executive Director to the EIC and continue to lead and develop our wonderful analyst team, build on the quality, and expand the scope of our proprietary databases that provide so much value to our members. I look forward to continuing to support the EIC members and growing the voice of the supply chain over the coming years.”
