Turner, a Chief Operating Officer at the Hartlepool-based offshore cable manufacturer JDR Cables, brings knowledge and expertise from the renewables and oil and gas markets to the board.
NOF Energy’s board, made up of 13 prominent industry professionals from the energy sector supply chain, works to inform and direct the organisation’s strategy.
