Global energy and commodity news and price reporting agency Argus has appointed Sean Watson, a senior corporate lawyer and adviser, as a non-executive board director.

“We are glad to welcome Sean to the Argus board of directors. He has a wealth of experience in international business, corporate finance and on working on boards over the last four decades. Sean has worked on many acquisitions over his career, experience that is of particular use to Argus as we expand our reach and expertise to other commodity markets. We look forward to benefiting from his wide knowledge and corporate experience,” Argus Media chairman and chief executive Adrian Binks said.

Sean qualified as a solicitor at Slaughter and May in 1972 and was invited to establish its Hong Kong office in 1974. Later, he became Cameron McKenna’s senior corporate finance partner. He has served on many boards, including as a non-executive director of Informa for nine years and is currently chairman of global electronics company TT Electronics.
