As well as Mr Anderson, the Global Advisory Panel will comprise Miro’s Board members and well-known London-based oil and gas identity Stuart Jackson.
Managing Director Tim Woodall said the appointment of people of the calibre of Mr Anderson and Mr Jackson was a significant milestone for Miro, which was established in October 2010 to service oil and gas and mining industry clients.
“The majority of engagements we are executing at the moment carry an international flavour in various forms, including capital markets and asset location,” he said.

Mr Anderson said the quality, experience and integrity of the Miro team and its focus on forging strong, long-term relationships with clients were key factors in his decision to join the panel.

With the establishment of the Advisory Panel and the increasing strength of the business, the company’s inaugural chairman, Agu Kantsler, has indicated that he will leave the board at the end of March 2011 to pursue other business interests.
Mr Woodall thanked Mr Kantsler for his contribution as founding chairman of Miro.
“Agu’s strong technical background was instrumental in the establishment of our company and I am pleased that while he will no longer participate at a board level, he remains a shareholder and strong supporter of the firm.”
