Neil has helped drive forward the digitalisation agenda at GWO
GWO Training Committee Vice Chair Neil Pickthall has resigned from his position following structural changes at his employer SSE.
Currently Competency and Development Team Manager at the UK-based developer and operator, Neil has played a vital role in steering GWO's training development work in recent years, while also shaping our Global Strategy: Safety without Borders 2020-2022. He has been a dedicated supporter of our work, particularly in key areas such as digitalisation.
Jakob Lau Holst, CEO of GWO explained. “We are very sorry to see Neil go, but would like to thank him for his dedication which has gone above and beyond - particularly during the challenges of COVID-19 lockdown.
John Barrie, Chair of the GWO Training Committee added: “It has been my pleasure to work alongside Neil these past few years. His commitment and dedication to safety for the wind power workforce are second to none. I hope we will see him again in a similar capacity in the very near future.”
Neil's seat as Vice Chair of the Training Committee will be nominated prior to GWO's Annual General Meeting on March 24th. The nomination process will commence in January 2021.
