XLCC appoints Chief Commercial Officer and General Counsel to capitalise on new year momentum

XLCC, the UK-based high-voltage direct current (HVDC) cable manufacturer and installer, today announces the appointment of Trevor Nash as Chief Commercial Officer and Patrick Beringer as General Counsel. XLCC is gearing up for further expansion in 2024 as global demand for HVDC cables increases, with energy projects racing to meet net zero targets.

Nash joined XLCC following a long career in senior roles across several international markets in finance and developing businesses, including a period as acting COO of the Emirati state-owned renewable energy company, Masdar. For the last two decades, Nash has been active in the development of clean energy projects, most recently in his role as CEO of AP Solar Holdings. Nash continues to play a major role in the commercialisation of emerging technologies and will bring his commercial and operational expertise to his position at XLCC.

Patrick has joined XLCC as General Counsel following 20 years at Nestle and two years working as the Legal Director of crisis-support organisation Medair. Beringer will bring with him a deep level of expertise in the manufacturing and service sectors. He will use his broad legal understanding and experience to navigate the current legislative landscape and ensure XLCC can achieve its development goals, as it seeks to break ground on its Hunterston factory site in North Ayrshire.

On joining XLCC as CCO, Trevor Nash said:

Given my work in renewable energy, XLCC is such an exciting company to be involved with, especially at this pivotal stage in the global energy transition. The world needs HVDC cables for grid enhancement if we are to achieve the full potential of clean energy. Now is a critical moment for the expansion of our supply chains and I am excited to be at the forefront of this journey.”

Reflecting on the opportunity as GC at XLCC, Patrick Beringer said:

I am looking forward to working with XLCC as it moves into unchartered territory for a UK-based manufacturing company. There is a long and ambitious roadmap ahead and one of the biggest challenges is navigating the legal environment. By helping XLCC to follow the necessary legal process and procedures as it continues its journey, I believe we can make a significant impact on delivering HVDC cables, a critical component in making the green energy transition a reality.”

Ian Douglas, CEO of XLCC said:

We welcome both Trevor and Patrick to the leadership team at XLCC. They will both play vital roles in our journey to debottleneck the renewable energy sector. We understand that there is no transition without transmission, and we are working alongside our key stakeholders to ensure we can facilitate power projects across the globe on a pragmatic timescale. While there is still a long road ahead, we are excited by the progress we are making and look forward to what 2024 has in store for us.”
