British investment firm NextEnergy Solar Fund has posted a new non-executive director to its board, who will eventually succeed its chairman.
Helen Mahy CBE, who joins at the beginning of April next year, is set to succeed Kevin Lyon as chairman from the next AGM in August.
Lyon has been chairman since the company’s IPO in 2014, having played a significant role in the expansion of the Company.
While board veteran Mahy, who recently retired as chairman of the Renewables Infrastructure Group and served as general counsel and company secretary at National Grid, also sits on the board of SSE.
“We are absolutely delighted to welcome Helen to the board,” said Lyon. “We believe her experience and long-standing commitment to the renewable energy sector will allow her to bring a wealth of knowledge and insight to the board and support the company’s further expansion.”
