New Year Honours: Jacquelynn Craw is recognised for work taking her from barrels of Brent crude to ballet

Having used her business expertise to help organisations in the arts and education sectors, Jacquelynn Craw said she was “totally delighted” to be made an MBE.

Director of the Offshore Pollution Liability Association (Opol), Mrs Craw has also held important roles at firms including Fairfield Energy, Talisman and Oil and Gas UK.

But her life-long love affair with dance also led her career in a very different direction, and she spent eight years on the board of Scottish Ballet.

She said: “I’m totally delighted because this is recognition of my work in business, arts and education – and recognition of the important intersections between these.

“By working together, we can bring creativity into business, and bring business knowledge into arts organisations which are often light on resources.

“The main work I have done in the arts is with Scottish Ballet, and that came about because, when I was at school, I was going to their workshops and being taken to see performances at the theatre with groups like the Guides.”

After studying law at Aberdeen University, Mrs Craw became a member of its development trust.

She also chairs its pension committee.

She added: “Both the universities in Aberdeen bring so much to the city and these partnerships are very important in terms of industry, schools, and raising the aspirations of kids.”
