UK Atomic Energy takes on CFO

Leader in nuclear decommissioning, site restoration and fusion research appoints new CFO

Andrew Jackson has been appointed chief financial officer of the UK’s
Atomic Energy Authority.

Jackson, 54, will take up his post on 1 September and joins from Alfred
McAlpine where he was a senior financial executive. He succeeds Paul White who
is retiring.

Jackson has considerable senior-level financial management experience in the
civil engineering industry. He joined Alfred McAlpine in 1994 as FD of its civil
engineering division and held several senior finance executive positions in the
company. He was also CFO and director at Bovis International before moving to
Norwest Holst Construction in 1991 as its FD.

Barbara Thomas Judge, UKAEA chairman, welcomed Jackson’s imminent arrival and
said: ‘Andrew brings to us an impressive track record of financial and
commercial experience in a major civil engineering company.

‘These qualities will be particularly valuable as we prepare to compete for
our existing and other UK decommissioning site contracts as well expanding our
business into other nuclear and non-nuclear markets.’

Dipesh Shah, UKAEA chief executive, added: ‘We now have the opportunity to
exploit our know-how in decommissioning to operate as a vibrant new British
company. To achieve our ambitions we require the highest level of financial
skills and I am sure that Andrew is the ideal choice to succeed Paul White in
this key role.’
