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.

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, he 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, he said: “I look forward to continuing to work 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.” 

Stephen Billingham served on Urenco’s Board for almost 15 years, from 2016 as Chairman, and prior to that, as a non-executive director, one of the longest serving directors in the company’s history.
