“We are going to grow through this. We are not battening down the hatches and waiting for the good times to return, we are taking the opportunity while everyone else is laying people off and getting rid of equipment.” Mike Loggie

Join 2015 Entrepreneurial Scotland Entrepreneur of the Year, Mike Loggie, for an insightful Evening With event as part of North-East Business Week.

Hear how Mike has put entrepreneurship in action, with Saltire Energy, now selling to over 50 countries world-wide and bringing 60% of turnover from international clients.

Mike Loggie’s early career spanned the RAF, the hospitality sector, a building consultancy, graphic design and even a betting shop.

In 1986 he spotted his first opportunity to make a mark in the oil and gas sector by applying the technology used by brewers to re-shape the filtration process used offshore.

Now a leading provider of drilling equipment to the offshore oil and gas industry, Mike’s focus on customer service, strategy, hand-on execution and giving back, has ensured continued growth during the downturn.

As a major supporter and contributor to community interests, including Aberdeen’s Sports Village and new aquatics centre, Mike has also established Saltire Sports for Schools, which provides enhanced opportunities for children from primary schools to participate in sports and activities and funded two schools overseas.
