Adrian Jackson, chief executive of the Oil and Pipelines Agency, has been elected as the new president of the Tank Storage Association, the trade association representing all aspects of the UK’s bulk liquid storage industry and associated logistics.

Jackson succeeds Paul Denmead, director of terminal operations UK at World Fuel Services Europe.

Wilma Kelly, HSE director at Certas Energy, has been elected to the position of vice president, and will also join the board of directors of the TSA.

The presidency and vice presidency transferred at the TSA’s AGM, which was held virtually yesterday.

Adrian Jackson said: “I am honoured to take on the role of president of the Tank Storage Association and to work with the association’s broad membership as we look to the future and lead the way in seizing the opportunities of tomorrow.

“At a time of transformational progress for our sector, as we look to recover from the pandemic and lead on the innovations needed to support the achievement of the UK’s decarbonisation targets, my priority will be to demonstrate the value and benefits that the bulk liquid storage industry provides.

“As part of these efforts, we will also be shining a light on the rewarding and diverse career opportunities that our industry offers. I would also like to warmly thank the outgoing president, Paul Denmead, and board members for their dedication and active involvement in TSA’s activities. Building on this legacy, I will continue working closely with TSA members and other stakeholders to promote the vast and strategic advantages of our industry.”

Kelly added: “I am delighted to be taking on the role of vice president at such an important time for the bulk liquid storage sector. The Tank Storage Association has a proud legacy as the leading voice for UK terminals and associated logistics and I look forward to continuing the work of its talented team in championing this incredibly vibrant industry.”
