NDA appoints Lawrie Haynes as new Chair Designate for Dounreay
David Peattie, Chief Executive Officer of the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority, yesterday announced the appointment of Lawrie Haynes as Chair Designate of Dounreay Site Restoration Ltd. (DSRL).
DSRL will become the newest Operating Company of the NDA when the current Parent Body Organisation, Cavendish Dounreay Partnership, transfers DSRL’s ownership to the NDA on 31 March 2021.
Lawrie brings extensive experience in senior executive and non-executive roles across a range of major private sector companies and high-profile public sector organisations.
He comes with a strong track record in the nuclear sector including his roles as President of Rolls-Royce’s Land and Sea Division, Chair of Magnox Ltd, Chief Executive of British Nuclear Group and Non-Executive Director at Network Rail.
David Peattie yesterday said:
Dounreay has a special place amongst our civil nuclear sites, and I’m delighted that Lawrie has accepted such a key role.
As one of the UK’s most important legacy civil nuclear sites, Dounreay is now transferring to NDA ownership, I am delighted that Lawrie has made this commitment.
He joins DSRL just as Mark Rouse is appointed as the new Managing Director, and as DSRL continue the process of appointing a new Executive Leadership Team. Lawrie’s experience will truly enhance that new team and further promote the fundamental role Dounreay has to play within the NDA family.
Lawrie Haynes yesterday said:
Dounreay is unique with an incredible history and tradition. The role and influence it has had within the communities of Caithness and North Sutherland cannot be underestimated, and I’m very proud to be given the opportunity to help shape its future and influence within the wider NDA Group as we deliver the site’s important mission.
Lawrie Haynes will continue in his role as Chair of Magnox Ltd and takes up his appointment as Dounreay Chair on 31 March 2021.
