New Members announced for INS Board

International Nuclear Services has announced two new appointments to its board.

Clive Nixon and Chris Watson will attend their first board meeting in February 2019.

Kate Ellis, Chair of INS said:

“I am delighted to welcome Clive and Chris to the INS Board. Their diversity of experience will help INS continue to provide solutions to complex nuclear transport challenges and bring expertise and new perspectives to the organisation as it embarks on a period of transformation.”

Kate also took the opportunity to pay tribute to Carole Jones who recently stepped down from the INS Board after 5 years:

“Carole’s background within the public and private sector means that she has been able to provide important challenge and financial rigour to the INS Board. I would like to thank her for her tremendous contribution to the success of INS over recent years.”

Below is some information on the new INS board members:

Clive Nixon

Clive will be a non-executive director on the INS board.

He joined the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA) in April 2005 after 15 years with British Nuclear Fuels, where he undertook a number of R&D, technical and commercial roles. As NDA Head of Strategy, Clive’s extensive knowledge of the UK and International nuclear sector and his experience with Government will be invaluable to INS as it develops its offerings to the evolving nuclear market.

Clive is also a non-executive director of INS’s sister company Direct Rail Services Ltd (DRS). With this experience of nuclear transport in a different sector, he will support INS and DRS to develop their strategic partnership.

Chris Watson

Chris joins the INS Board as an executive director.

He joined INS in April 2016 as Business Services Director following almost 10 years with the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA). He has considerable experience in Portfolio, Programme and Project Management; Assurance; and Health and Safety. His experience of strategy development and risk assurance will help INS make well-informed decisions as it develops and delivers its new strategy.
