Energy Intelligence has announced that Emilio Lozoya Austin, CEO of Pemex has been chosen as the Petroleum Executive of the Year. The 2014 award, as selected by top global industry executives, will be presented to Lozoya on 29 October at an honorary dinner during the 35th Annual Oil & Gas Money Conference in London.
Lozoya was appointed CEO of Mexico’s state owned oil company, Pemex, in December 2012, having previously served as head of International Affairs Office on the Transition Team of Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto. He has also worked in international banking and was the cofounder of investment funds specialising in international private capital investments.
Lozoya played a key role working alongside President Pena Nieto to obtain passage to Mexico’s historic energy reform, which is poised to transform Mexico’s oil sector from being one of the world’s most closed energy markets to a new magnet for energy investment from around the globe. Under Lozoya’s leadership, Pemex is embarking upon its most significant corporate transformation in the past 75 years as it moves from being a state monopoly to a dynamic state enterprise that will compete for opportunities in the sector either on its own or in partnership with other companies.
