UKLPG, the trade association for the LPG industry, has announced the appointment of its new chief executive. Effective from 1 July 2018, following the completion of his employment with Insite Energy, Peter Westwood will succeed Rob Shuttleworth who retired this month after 12 years in the role.

Appointed to lead the trade association at an exciting time for the industry, Peter said: “UKLPG has achieved considerable success in building awareness of the many benefits of LPG to the Government, end users and stakeholders. I am delighted to be asked to bring my experience to continue to build on these successes and take the organisation to the next level in response to the Government’s Clean Growth Strategy.

“Along with the fantastic UKLPG team in Kenilworth, I look forward to representing the membership going forward”.

George Webb, UKLPG chair, added: “I am delighted that Peter will be joining UKLPG. With his background in strategy within the energy industry, Peter’s experience will prove invaluable in the next phase of growth for UKLPG and I very much look forward to working with him.”
