Consumer protection charity Electrical Safety First has announced the appointment of Lesley Rudd as Chief Executive, succeeding Phil Buckle who retired from the role in October this year.
Rudd currently heads up the Sustainable Energy Association and has worked for over 30 years in the energy sector. She has a broad range of experience gained through a variety of roles encompassing finance, business development, public affairs and communications.
Alison Parkes, Chair of the Charity, said: “Lesley’s track record and commercial background, together with her experience of working with governments and regulators to shape energy policy, has given her a depth understanding and focus on establishing practical policy solutions. We believe she is the ideal person to take the Charity forward to the next stage of its development.”
Commenting on her time working in the oil and gas industry, Rudd said: “It was during this time that I worked closely with other key members of the sector to ensure that lessons were learnt from safety incidents and utilised effectively.
“Becoming Chief Executive of Electrical Safety First allows me to use my skills to full effect in an area that I am passionate about and I look forward greatly to joining the team early next year.”
Rudd takes up her new role in February 2020.
