Nicholas Gohl, CFO, HG Storage

Nicholas was part of the team that brought together the HG Storage portfolio of assets from its roots within Glencore, into the standalone business that it is today. He leads the global finance function as well as much of the asset management responsibility across the portfolio where he works closely with the assets in developing strategies for growth and development, and dealing with the evolving markets and economies in which they operate. HG Storage operates over 3 million cbm of storage terminal capacity as well as downstream oil and gas businesses across Europe, Latin America, Africa and the Middle East.

Influenced by his upbringing in South Africa, Nicholas is passionate about the role that the storage industry plays in alleviating energy poverty, especially in many of the developing world countries in which HG operates. The developed world often takes for granted the access it has to on-demand energy or electricity, gas to cook with and to heat homes, and reliable supply of fuel to get around and to power industry. However, for much of the rest of the world these are luxuries and the lack of access to energy significantly hampers their ability to develop and grow. Nicholas sees the industry, and HG Storage in particular, as playing an important role in alleviating energy poverty, through development and provision of import, storage and distribution infrastructure to these economies, most of whom are reliant on refined product imports, as well as complementary non-fossil means of advancing everyday life: be it through solar installations or exploring the addition of sustainable alternatives and blend stocks into the local energy mix, and how HG might facilitate this.

Originally trained as a Chartered Accountant at Deloitte in Johannesburg, he has developed into a rounded leader with an ever-expanding level of cross-functional knowledge across the business. He has an exciting future within the business and industry as it grapples with the challenges that lie ahead in remaining relevant in a changing world. He lives with his young family in London and enjoys traveling, social golf, and generally getting active outdoors.
