17 June 2024

Urenco, an international supplier of uranium enrichment services, announces that Justin Manson will succeed Stephen Billingham CBE as Chairman of the Board on 1 July 2024.

Justin brings a wealth of business, finance and government experience to the role. He has been a non-executive director of Urenco since 2016, serving on the Audit and Remuneration Committees as well as being Chair of the Sustainability Committee.

He is a non-executive director of Gasrec, the largest supplier of bio-LNG and LNG to the heavy goods vehicle industry in the UK. He was a Senior Adviser and interim Chief Executive of UK Government Investments, (a company wholly-owned by the UK Treasury) and a non-executive director of UK Export Finance. Previously, Justin was a Senior Adviser and Managing Director of Morgan Stanley, where he advised multinational companies as well as governments on financing and mergers and acquisitions. 

Commenting on his appointment, Justin said: “I look forward to working with the Board and management of Urenco, a company at the heart of the global nuclear energy industry and which plays a key role in ensuring security of supply and fulfilment of climate change goals. This is an exciting time for Urenco as it expands operations in its core business at each of its sites and develops advanced fuels capacities as well as stable and medical isotopes.”

Justin’s successor as non-executive director of Urenco will be appointed and announced in the coming weeks.

Stephen Billingham served on Urenco’s Board for almost 15 years, from 2016 as Chairman, and prior to that, as a non-executive director. He has been one of the longest serving directors in the company’s history. The Board of Urenco greatly appreciates and thanks Stephen for the significant contribution he has made.
