Leading training and technology organisation, 3t Energy Group, has appointed Elaine Safier as a non-executive director on the board.
New York-born, Elaine has distinguished herself in the digital arena, having spent her career in senior positions with global companies such as AOL, Cable and Wireless, HSBC and United News and Media helping to create and shape their digital propositions.
Most recently, she was chief digital officer at learning and development business, MindGym where she was responsible for building a new digital e-learning proposition to complement traditional in-person training programmes for its FTSE 100 and S&P100 clients. During this time Elaine built a 100+ strong team from scratch and launched MindGym’s first industry-leading digital coaching product.
Elaine also has considerable experience of building and scaling pure play digital businesses and disruptive technology companies including Tradedoubler and Atosho.
Since its formation in early 2018, 3t Energy Group has transformed the global training market through its companies, AIS Survivex, Drilling Systems and 3t Transform to become the UK’s largest energy sector training provider and a world-leader in the application of digital technologies into training, such as virtual reality, e-learn, simulation and training management software.
Elaine will be responsible for providing a software as a service (SaaS) experienced perspective to the 3t Energy Group board, as well as adding her extensive business expertise and knowledge to strategic decision-making.
Elaine Safier said: “3t Energy Group is entering a really exciting phase as it builds on the huge tail wind created from increased digital technology adoption in the wake of the pandemic.
“The global energy sector is recognising the enormous potential of blended learning and 3t Energy Group is in the unique position of leading the market in both traditional training and innovative training technology. It also has an exciting opportunity to take its offering into other high risk, highly regulated sectors.
“This is a fantastic time to join the team. I’m really looking forward to bringing my experience of high growth technology-driven businesses to the table to help 3t as it embarks on the next stage of its inspirational growth journey.”
Chair of the 3t Energy Group Board, Mark Corrigan, said: “I’m delighted to welcome Elaine Safier to the board at 3t Energy Group. She has a proven track record in scaling up and commercialising digital businesses and SaaS models and will strengthen the board’s existing skillset by bringing her own unique perspective. 3t Energy Group has built an unrivalled reputation in the energy training sector and we are excited by the opportunities associated with helping our customers become safer, smarter and more efficient through technology and training. We’re also inspired by challenges such as the energy transition and the over-arching trend towards digitalisation and intend to leverage our proven expertise and offerings to benefit customers in other high risk and high compliance sectors. Elaine’s appointment and experiences will help us accelerate this journey.”
