GLOBAL ENERGY THOUGHT LEADERSHIP

MONTREUX ENERGY

Montreux Energy was founded in 1990 in Montreux, Switzerland as a private dialogue between OPEC, the International Energy Agency, oil & gas industry majors and the international banking community.

Montreux Energy has since convened over 5,000 CEO-level decision-makers in Europe, the U.S., and China.  We discuss investment, policy, and technology in a practical 5-to 10-year investment horizon.  Our continuing objective is to share strategic insights on the global transition to a clean, secure, energy world.

Montreux Energy Roundtables are exclusively reserved for industry leaders, investors, government leaders, and key stakeholders.  Participation is invitation-only and closed to the press to ensure an open dialogue.

Andrew has followed the global energy industry for over 35 years, starting in the summer of 1982, during which he worked offshore in the North Sea (Argyll Field) for Denver-based Hamilton Brothers Oil Company.

Andrew started his career at Merrill Lynch in New York in sales and trading in 1985. He then worked for a year with the International Energy Agency at the OECD in Paris, before joining Montreux Energy at its outset in 1990.  He opened Montreux Energy’s London offices in 1997, and has organized 67 Montreux Energy Roundtables in five countries.

Andrew received an MS in Mineral Economics from the Colorado School of Mines in 1992, a BA in Economics from Middlebury College in 1985, and completed the Career Discovery Program in Architecture at the Harvard Graduate School of Design in 1979.
