Joining the top table are Chris Phillips as chair, Sir Michael Fallon as deputy chair, and Brian Aird as finance director. Chris Phillips brings five decades of international finance experience, with senior positions in investment banking, advisory and brokerage. For the past eight years, he has been chair of property management and leisure group Places for People, alongside chairmanship of the Shetland Space Centre, Hadleigh Waymoth, Centaurea Investments and Triple Point Social Housing. Sir Michael Fallon served as Minister of State at the Department of Energy and Climate Change from 2013 to 2014, before becoming Secretary of State for Defence from 2014 to 2017. He was deputy chair of the Conservative Party from 2010 to 2012 and Minister of State for Business and Enterprise from 2012 to 2014. As well as his political appointments, Fallon has extensive board experience, including Genel Energy and Tullett Prebon. He said: “Tidal power is now a key part of the transition to cleaner energy - Nova has already deployed its cost-effective turbines in the UK and has won major contracts in Canada.” Brian Aird is a Chartered Accountant and trained with KPMG before joining Wood Mackenzie. He was part of the three-strong director management team which led the buy-out of the business in December 2001, valued at £25m, and eventual £1.85bn sale to Verisk Analytics in 2015. Since then, Aird has taken on a broader corporate role supporting the US Verisk business and is now the corporate treasurer for the consolidated global operations. He commented: “Nova is at a pivotal point having successfully proven the quality of their technology, and this is now about taking the offering to a market which is eager to embrace successful green energy resources.” Read More Nova Innovation built the world’s first offshore tidal array in Shetland in 2016. It is currently working on projects in Wales, Canada and France, and exploring opportunities in Indonesia and Japan. Chief executive Simon Forrest said: “We are delighted to be strengthening the board of Nova Innovation, recognising the considerable breadth of talent that our new members bring. "This will be invaluable as we scale up internationally and take tidal energy mainstream." He also thanked outgoing chair Ian Marchant for his seven years of service. Marchant added: “When I first joined Nova as non-exec chair, the company was in its infancy – it employed a handful of people and its first turbine was being assembled in a shed. “Over the past seven years the company has made enormous progress, including combining tidal power with battery storage to produce base load energy, securing investment to advance the technology and now winning multi-million dollar contracts to develop tidal projects around the world.” InsiderScotland
