NOF Energy, the energy industry business development organisation, has appointed Richard Turner from JDR Cables to its board.
Richard, who is Chief Operating Officer at the Hartlepool-based offshore cable manufacturer, brings extensive knowledge and expertise to the board from the renewables and oil & gas markets.
He joined JDR Cables in 2014 following almost five years as Vice President Global Manufacturing with Technip Umbilical Systems and has built an impressive track record over the last 16 years for delivering manufacturing excellence and maximising efficient operations.
JDR Cables, which is a member of NOF Energy, operates in global markets as a manufacturer of high performance subsea umbilicals and power cables, which are capable of operating in the world’s harshest offshore environments.
Richard has been integral to the company’s continued growth and commitment to investment, which includes the development of a new wing at its Hartlepool facility, which will house some of the world’s largest and highest capacity cable and umbilical manufacturing equipment.
NOF Energy’s board, which is made up of 13 prominent industry professionals from the energy sector supply chain, works to inform and direct the organisation’s strategy.
Providing a suite of services for its network of 500 members that help identify new business opportunities in the UK and around the world, NOF Energy also delivers industry intelligence and hosts an extensive calendar of networking events and briefings.
