Westinghouse executive wins major nuclear industry award
Last December, Adrian Bull - Head of Media & Stakeholder Relations for Westinghouse in Europe, Middle East & Africa – was named by the UK’s Young Generation Network as the 2011 recipient of their Outstanding Contribution Award. The award is presented annually by the YGN – part of the UK’s Nuclear Institute – to a person whom they consider has made an outstanding contribution to the industry, with particular focus on the development of younger people and support for YGN activities.
Making the announcement at the Annual Dinner of the Nuclear Institute and Nuclear Industry Association (NIA), Connor Deehan of NUKEM technologies, who is this year’s YGN Chairman, said:
“Adrian has always been more than willing to present at our events, engage with our members, share his knowledge and provide all around support to the YGN. He’s always encouraged younger members to get involved and has been described as “a modern man” of the industry - approachable by all. His enthusiasm for all aspects of the industry has been an inspiration across the YGN committee. I am delighted to announce Adrian as the 2011 winner of our Outstanding Contribution Award and I would like to personally thank him for his tremendous assistance this year, including his participation in many of our seminars and Rough Guide events.”
Adrian Bull commented:
“The YGN is a fantastic organisation, and it’s clear to me that the talented and enthusiastic people in the YGN are among those who are key to securing a successful long-term future for the UK’s nuclear industry. I’m lucky that Westinghouse has always been exceptionally supportive of YGN and have encouraged my participation in many YGN events over recent years. To be recognised through this award is incredibly flattering and I am very proud and honoured to receive it. I look forward to working with YGN for many years to come.”
