NDA announces new Chair of the Sellafield Ltd Board
The Nuclear Decommissioning Authority’s (NDA) CEO, David Peattie, has today announced that Tony Meggs CB has been appointed as the new Chair of NDA subsidiary, Sellafield Ltd.
Tony will take up his post for a three-year term on 3rd May 2021, replacing Lorraine Baldry who has led the Sellafield Board since May 2018 as Sellafield Chair. Tony will report directly to David Peattie.
David Peattie said:
I am delighted that Tony has agreed to be the next Chair of the Sellafield Ltd Board. Tony brings a huge breadth of leadership experience and his insight on major infrastructure projects and the energy sector will be invaluable to Sellafield. I look forward to working with him and know he will have a significant impact on Sellafield Ltd.
Tony is an experienced Chair and senior executive leader with 30 years’ experience across the public and private sector. Most recently Tony was Chair of Crossrail, engaged in 2019 to oversee the integration phase of the project. Significantly, Tony held several senior roles at BP and as Head of Technology was responsible for the organisation’s central project and engineering functions and R&D.
He co-founded the BP Projects Academy, building a cohort of leaders to maximise the success of the organisation’s global projects, which later became the inspiration for the Government’s Major Projects Leadership Academy. More recently, Tony was able to gain first-hand experience of the Sellafield nuclear site and the size, scale and complexity of its work, in his role as Chief Executive of the Infrastructure and Projects Authority.
Tony Meggs said:
Being appointed to the role of Chair at Sellafield Ltd is an honour and a privilege. The ongoing work to clean-up and decommission the Sellafield site is of national importance and the opportunities are huge. I look forward to working with David Peattie and the Sellafield Board and Executive team to progress this important mission.
David Peattie added:
I would like to thank Lorraine Baldry for her important and significant contribution to our mission as she comes to the end of her term as Chair of Sellafield Ltd. Things have moved forward considerably during her tenure and I am grateful for her excellent work.
