The business relationships between Benelux and the UK are hugely Important to all of us, so what better way to celebrate another successful year at our AGM, than with one of our newest member firms, for whom it’s equally important – ExxonMobil.

Benelux and the UK share a rich economic relationship. UK-Belgian trade and investment is huge in its own right. Belgium is the UK’s six largest global market with British companies extensively invested in the country. The figures for Belgium alone are impressive, but taken together Benelux is second only to the USA as an export market for Britain.

For ExxonMobil, Benelux and the UK are at the core of its European operations. It has major operations across these countries with exploration, production, selling and distribution of natural gas and crude oil. The company also operates refineries including the largest refinery in the UK, as well as a number of chemical plants.

Joost Van Roost graduated with a Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering in 1977 at the Catholic University of Leuven and holds a Master of Business Administration from the same University, as well as a Master of Science in Nuclear Engineering from the University of Michigan.  He worked as a researcher at the Belgian National Fund for Scientific Research before joining Esso Belgium in 1979.  Mr. Van Roost progressed through engineering, planning and marketing positions in the Esso Benelux organization before transferring to the USA in 1993.  Whilst in the US he worked in the Baton Rouge refinery Operations Department and later he assumed management responsibility for Esso Caribbean and Central America before he moved to the International Natural Gas department.  Mr. Van Roost returned to The Hague in 1999 as Upstream Director Esso Benelux.  Following the merger with Mobil, Mr. Van Roost also became President of ExxonMobil Benelux in 2000 (offices in Breda).
