The public affairs and public relations company set up by Sam McMillan has been shortlisted for the ‘Outstanding Service’ Award.

McMillan Consultancy works with a number of FTSE 100 and independent renewable energy companies across Scotland.

Sam, who grew up in Inverbervie and Stonehaven before attending Edinburgh University, still has family in Stonehaven and McMillan Consultancy was a sponsor of the Stonehaven Fireballs in 2019.

Sam McMillan, Director of McMillan Consultancy, said: “We’re a small Scottish public affairs company and lucky enough to work with a number of exciting renewable energy companies.

“It was a surprise to be shortlisted for the award and we’re looking forward to the evening and promoting the renewables sector.

“Coming from the North East, I know firsthand the importance of the energy sector to the local and national economy and it is great to be working in Scotland’s growing renewables industry.”

The company is one of five Scottish businesses to be shortlisted for the Outstanding Service Award, alongside law firm Shepherd & Wedderburn, environmental consultancies MacArthur Green and Natural Power, and renewable energy company RES’s Operations Team.

Traditionally a Black Tie event with over 1,200 guests, this year’s Scottish Green Energy Awards will be a fully virtual event due to Covid-19 and will be held online on Thursday, November 26.

Comedian Jo Caulfield will host the Awards Ceremony and anyone can register for free to attend/watch the event that celebrates Scotland’s renewable energy industry.

Previous speakers at the event have included First Minister Nicola Sturgeon and Energy Minister Paul Wheelhouse.
