Whitehaven-based Delkia has formed a new board.

The company has grown exponentially in the last three years, diversifying its services into aerospace and maritime sectors, while reinforcing its presence in the clean energy industry.

To further this growth, the firm has revamped its internal systems, broadened its workforce, and has established a board led by an independent chair and two independent non-executive directors.

The board will work to enable further sustainable growth and will support the CEO, Kurt Canfield.

Neil Longfellow, with decades of experience working at a senior level in the energy sector, has been appointed as the new chairman.

He said: “I am delighted and excited to be appointed chair of Delkia.

"The business is going from strength to strength and the growth opportunities are significant. In addition, the experience and wisdom of our two independent non-executive directors, David Irwin, and Tony Davies, will be significant in shaping the future direction of Delkia.”

The board will also include two independent non-executive directors, David Irwin and Tony Davies.

David's expertise lies in senior leadership and finance, while Tony has enjoyed a 30-year tenure in the nuclear and defence sectors, with experience as a senior executive.

Kurt Canfield said: “Our new Chair and Board members bring a wealth of business, commercial sector, and financial expertise to Delkia.

"The Board will hold myself, as CEO, to account, ensure excellent company governance and audit, aiding us in readiness for our next level of growth, with a target of £20M turnover by 2026.”
