Britain's Energy Coast Business Cluster announces new and returning members of the Board of Directors

Britain’s Energy Coast Business Cluster (BECBC) today announces new and returning members of the organisation’s Board of Directors

BECBC is run by a Board of seven volunteers, who are nominated by members and elected at the annual AGM for a three-year tenure. The Board come from a range of backgrounds, sectors and geographical areas offering diversity and the ability to add a depth of value to the members.

Lee Grears, Chair of the Board, commented: “As chair of the Board, I am always amazed at how much commitment our directors, who all have full-time jobs, show as they volunteer to keep driving BECBC forward. I am delighted that Ruth Sellick has been voted back in, she provides an enormous amount of support – often behind the scenes – to the cluster. I would also like to welcome Paul Pointon to the team. We are excited to have him join the board and I believe that his vast experience will help us deliver on our goals to create an environment in which members can easily collaborate and do business, particularly in the energy sector.”

Joining the board this year, voted in by members of the business cluster today, Paul Pointon, Vice President, Amentum, says: “Throughout my career, I have experienced life from both a private and public sector perspective and understand how difficult it can be to conduct business in the nuclear industry. I have witnessed first-hand the challenges facing the operator and the supply chain but have also experienced the pleasure of getting the cascade effect right – where everyone benefits including the broader community. I would like to offer this knowledge, expertise and experience to the Business Cluster Board and help members forge alliances that open doors to business and successful outcomes for all involved.”

Ruth Sellick from Orano was re-elected to the board and remains in her role as Deputy Chair. “I have been inspired by the energy, resilience and continued appetite for collaboration of members, during some very challenging times for business and communities. I want to continue to convert this inspiration into initiatives that will open the door to business opportunities.”
