Vale George Savell
Many of our members will have known George Savell, AMEC’s first Chief Executive Officer, closely. Those who didn’t will certainly have known him by reputation.
Sadly, George passed away this January. On behalf of the Association, I extend our sincerest condolences to his family, and his wife Shirley during this difficult time.
In his time as AMEC CEO (1987 – 2003) George was an extremely devoted and passionate advocate for our members and our industry. He established the Association as a respected and highly influential body that could effectively lobby and win outcomes for industry and won himself a reputation as a fierce industry advocate.
In 2011, as AMEC celebrated its 30th anniversary, George wrote of his time and experience at AMEC. I’ll leave it to him to tell it in his own words in the article below.
