Offshore Achievement Awards Rising Star 2004 - John Donachie

December 2015

Back in 2004, Partner and Head of Corporate Finance with Pareto Securities Limited, John Donachie, was celebrating his win as Rising Star at the Offshore Achievement Awards.

Working for Schlumberger at the time, John had just begun to set up the Young Professionals network, then known as the Emerging Leaders Programme, the first of its kind in Aberdeen.

John has continued to be involved in the Offshore Achievement Awards, and we are delighted that he will once again be part of our esteemed judging panel.

Energy Voice spoke to John recently about the win and what it meant to him:
