Regulatory Specialist Joins The 79th Group As Non-Exec Director
The former chief executive of the Britain’s nuclear safety regulator, Adriènne Kelbie CBE, has joined the board of the growing asset management operation – The 79th Group – as a Non-Executive Director.
She brings over 25 years of leadership experience in high-profile public sector organisations, including community funding, local government, safeguarding and criminal records.
Kelbie’s most recent position was with the UK’s Office for Nuclear Regulation, recognised as one of the foremost such bodies worldwide. Under her leadership it gained international credit for its effective stakeholder engagement, strong international contribution and enabling regulation, as well as winning several awards, recognising exceptional staff talent and development.
Kelbie was appointed a Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List last year, for services to the nuclear industry and to diversity and inclusion.
Kelbie says: “These are exciting times for The 79th Group and I am delighted to be joining the company at such a key stage in its growth. I look forward to working closely with the team, to support significant growth and change.”
David Webster, Chairman of The 79th Group, which he established 30 years ago, adds: “We could not have a better person on board to advise us on making sure we enable our people to achieve their full potential, helping to support our investors, partners and clients and grow our business.”
The 79th Group includes high end residential development company, 79th Luxury Living; a residential and commercial letting business and precious metals division, Lusso Tesoro, which has recently acquired several gold mining concessions in north eastern Guinea.
