Nick Elliott appointed to the board of the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority

Director Nick Elliott has been appointed to the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA) as a non-executive board member. The NDA is a non-departmental public body responsible for cleaning up the UK’s earliest nuclear sites safely, securely and cost-effectively.

The role has a three-year term and will see Nick chair the NDA’s Project and Programmes committee. The appointment was made by Kwasi Kwarteng, the Secretary of State for the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, in consultation with Scottish ministers.

Nick served as the Director-General of the UK Vaccine Taskforce before joining our business in March 2021. His career includes senior roles in Network Rail and the National Supply Chain organisation. He has previously served as a Non-Executive Director on the board of the Submarine Delivery Agency and as a Council Member of the Rail Supply Group.

Dr Ros Rivaz, the Chair of the NDA, said:

I am delighted that Nick is joining us to support our vital and complex work to decommission the UK’s 17 earliest nuclear sites. He will be a great addition to the NDA board given his wealth of experience in leading major infrastructure and defence projects.

Nick Elliott commented on his appointment:

It is a great honour to be joining the NDA’s board. I am hugely excited and privileged to be part of the NDA’s world-leading work in nuclear decommissioning and I am looking forward to playing a part in that mission.
