Thuy-Tien, who holds an MBA from Robert Gordon University, joined ASCO five years ago as Group Marketing and Communications Manager. In September 2021, she became Group Sustainability and Marketing Manager to advance ASCO’s sustainability goals. Previously, she held various commercial roles, including over nine years at Lhoist Western Europe focusing on new business development in water treatment. Thuy-Tien is also a non-executive director at the Energy Industries Council (EIC).

In her new role, she is charged with leading ASCO’s positioning for growth in the global new energy marketplace, collaborating with colleagues around the world to drive continued diversification in energies such as wind power, clean fuels and CCUS. ASCO aims to boost profitability by 40 percent over the next five years, primarily through new energies and territorial expansion. Thuy-Tien will also continue to drive ASCO’s decarbonisation roadmap, developing initiatives to meet net zero GHG by 2040.

“The two aspects of my role are inter-related. The energy transition is all about getting a low carbon energy system. There are huge opportunities for ASCO in the new energy markets as a key enabler with proven expertise in the delivery of projects from logistics consultancy through to operational delivery and coordination.” said Thuy-Tien.

Mike Pettigrew, ASCO CEO said: “Thuy‑Tien has already demonstrated her passion for our net zero aspirations and the direction of our business growth. We can think of no one better to take a leading role in supporting ASCO as it looks forward to transformational times ahead.”

Thuy-Tien’s promotion follows other senior promotions including Fraser Stewart, from MD International to Chief Commercial Officer, Marianne Lipp, from Director M&A to Deputy CFO and Allison Thomson, from Group Strategy Manager to Head of Strategy & Business Optimisation.
