Dr Rebecca Weston CPhys, CEng, FInstP, FNucI, MBA (Oxon)

Emeritus Director

Rebecca has been a member of the CfLP board since 2012 and was Chairman between 2015 and 2019. She brings the benefit of business and industrial experience, much gained from senior leadership positions at Sellafield Limited in Operations, Technical and Commercial, where she is currently the Chief Operating Officer.

Rebecca is passionate about learning and development, particularly with respect to aspiration and enabling people to make the most of their talents. Alongside her work with CfLP, as a Chartered Physicist and Chartered Engineer and a Fellow of both the Institute of Physics and Nuclear Institute, she has mentored and coached throughout her career, alongside driving strategic developments and changes in skills, training and development.

Rebecca is also a board member of the Cumbria Local Enterprise Partnership and chairs the Clean Energy Panel. Developing the future local talent, as CfLP does through collaboration with partners, will be a critical enabler to delivering a clean growth future for Cumbria and the UK.
