OCU Group appoints Tania Songini as Non-Executive Director

OCU Group (“OCU”) is pleased to announce the appointment of Tania Songini as a Non-Executive Director. In addition to joining the main Board, Tania will also chair the Audit & Risk and ESG committees as part of her non-executive responsibilities.

Tania had an executive career spanning over two decades, spent mostly in senior finance roles at Siemens AG. She also spent time with the International Rescue Committee, an international humanitarian relief NGO operating in countries destabilised by war, conflict and natural disasters.

Tania is a highly experienced non-executive director and holds non-executive directorships at Thrive Renewables plc, Guernsey Electricity Ltd, Energy Systems Catapult and the UK Infrastructure Bank.

Through her executive career Tania has developed a strong understanding of finance, commercial risk and the management of large, complex projects. More recently through her non-executive career, she has developed a deep understanding of developments in renewable energy and the wider energy transition in the UK and beyond.

David Taylor-Smith, Chairman of OCU, said:

“On behalf of the board, I am delighted to welcome Tania to OCU. Tania will be a valuable addition to the Board and has a wealth of relevant industry, finance and board experience. Her specific industry knowledge, particularly with regards to renewables and the UK’s energy transition, will significantly enhance the skills and expertise of the Board as we continue to execute our strategy.”

Tania Songini added:

“I am delighted to join the board of a group as dynamic as OCU. The business is going through a period of change and rapid growth as it pivots to being not only one of the country’s leading utility services contractors but also a leading contractor for the transformative change in the UK’s energy landscape. I look forward to working with David, OCU’s CEO Michael Hughes and the wider Board to deliver the group’s strategy.”
