The National Nuclear Laboratory (NNL) is pleased to announce the appointment of Ruth Dunphy as Chief Financial Officer.

Ruth will formally join NNL on 16 November 2015.

Ruth brings almost 20 years’ experience in financial management across a range of industry sectors including engineering, construction, consultancy services, manufacturing, retail and tourism.

NNL Chairman, Richard Maudslay commented:

“I am delighted that Ruth is to join the NNL Board and Executive teams and I look forward to working with her. She has an excellent track record of leading financial delivery in some very challenging business sectors. She has also demonstrated her ability to deliver transformational change within a business, in parallel with significant growth. Once again, her appointment is evidence of the calibre of excellent individual talent which NNL is able to attract and I know she will play a vital role in shaping and supporting the future direction of the NNL business.”

“I am excited to be joining NNL at such a pivotal time in both the company’s and wider nuclear industry’s evolution. I am delighted to be part of an exceptional team whose skills and experience I hope to further complement in the future. Although I’m new to the nuclear sector, I think my broad experience in other industries will prove very valuable in this role and I am looking forward to helping shape the future of the business.”
