New Chief Executive Officer's first day

30 September 2009

tonyfountain225x165On Thursday 1st October, Tony Fountain takes up his position of NDA Chief Executive, when he will attend his first Board meeting.

Tony's first actual duty however will be a tour of the Chapelcross site in Dumfries and Galloway, on Wednesday 30th September, along with the NDA Board of Directors, where they will see the progress Chapelcross is making towards defuelling and decommissioning Scotland's first nuclear power station.

Tony joins the NDA from BP following an extensive international career over the last 25 years including several postings to the US. In his most recent position as Chief Operating Officer (COO) of BP's Fuels Value Chains business, he was responsible for the strategic and operational leadership of BP's integrated businesses in the Eastern Hemisphere, with a multi-billion income stream of 15,000 staff across Europe, Australasia and Africa.

He is looking forward to meeting the team at Chapelcross, seeing the excellent work that is being done and hearing about the challenges they face. Tony states: 'The first hand experience will be of great help in determining what the focus of my attention will be to ensure we succeed in our mission of cleaning up the nuclear legacy as safely and cost-effectively as possible.'
