Former BP engineer David Peattie named nuclear authority CEO
Former BP engineer David Peattie has been appointed to the role of chief executive officer (CEO) at the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA).
Peattie (pictured) replaces outgoing CEO John Clarke, who spent five years in the role.
While at BP, Peattie’s roles included head of group investor relations, commercial director of its chemicals business, and head of the company’s Russia division.
Following over 30 years with the oil and gas major, he joined Fairfield Energy in 2013, serving as CEO for three years.
At the NDA Peattie will be responsible for leading the NDA in the decommissioning and clean-up of 17 legacy nuclear sites across the UK, including Sellafield.
He said: “It is a privilege to have been asked to take on this important role, which is central to delivering the important mission of decommissioning the UK’s nuclear legacy.”
Meanwhile, former NDA non-executive director Tom Smith has replaced Stephen Henwood as chairman at the body.
“I would like to offer warm thanks to retiring chief executive John Clarke and would also like to thank Stephen for his excellent stewardship of the NDA over the last nine years,” Smith said.
