Sir Mick Davis joins Arq Board of Directors

London, UK – Arq, the UK-based energy technology company, announces the appointment of Sir Mick Davis as a non-executive director on its Board

Davis brings many years of mining and energy experience to the Arq Board. He was formerly Chief Executive of Xstrata, the Anglo-Swiss mining entity, until it merged with Glencore in 2013. He had previously held the role of Chief Financial Officer of Billiton plc. Since June 2017 he has been CEO and Treasurer of the UK’s Conservative Party.

Davis’ appointment follows hard on the heels of the appointments of Vitol’s Mike Muller and former BP Chief Scientist Bernie Bulkin to the Arq Board in October, as Arq bolsters its impressive team of highly experienced non-executive directors.

Davis joins the Board as Arq prepares to rapidly scale its international business and to partner with coal and energy industry majors across the globe. Next year will also see the launch of the first Arq Technology plant in Corbin, Kentucky USA.

Sir Mick commented:

“I’m delighted to be joining Arq at an exciting time in its development as it prepares to launch its innovative energy products into the market. This break-through technology will help to provide an immediate solution for a number of key global energy issues.”

 Julian McIntyre, Chief Executive of Arq, said:

“I’m delighted that Sir Mick has agreed to join us as we gear up for our first plant launch in 2019. His experience, knowledge and contacts across the mining and energy industry will be invaluable to us as we move into the next stage of our development. Together with Bernie, Mike and our other directors we now have a formidable Board to drive Arq forward.”
