HSP Appoints General Manager to Board

Derrick Mackenzie, newly appointed to board of Directors

H.S. Pipequipment Ltd (HSP), the leading supplier of world-class valves to the oil, gas, and petrochemical industries, is pleased to announce the appointment of Derrick Mackenzie, general manager of Aberdeen and the Middle East, to the board of Directors.

Mackenzie joined HSP in 2005, having previously worked in a number of senior roles at Aberdeen-based Tyco Valves and Control Limited, including the position of aftermarket manager in the valves and services division.

His appointment to the board of directors means that Mackenzie will now be involved in strategic decisions that will impact the future direction of the HSP group.

“When I first joined HSP, business turnover in Aberdeen was £2 million,” he says. “We have grown the business year on year so that turnover is above £6 million. Going forward, my focus is to maintain growth and to continue to target end user direct business.

“Extending our product range and bringing on new manufacturers has helped us to achieve a stable footing in the Aberdeen market. Now that I have joined the board I hope to bring some new ideas to the group that can be used in other areas of the business.”

HSP CEO, Peter Everett added: “We are delighted with the appointment. Derrick Mackenzie has made a significant contribution to the growth and success of HSP in his five years as general manager of the Aberdeen division and I am confident that he will prove to be a valuable addition to the HSP board of Directors.”
