Former KPMG communications head Sorrelle Harper joins Storegga
Former KPMG UK head of communications Sorrelle Harper has joined Storegga, the firm behind the Acorn carbon capture and storage (CSS) project in Aberdeenshire, as head of corporate affairs.
Ms Harper has run her own strategic communications consultancy, Sharpener Communications, for the past four years, advising senior management on company launches, private equity fundraisings and M&A, as well as on crisis communications issues related to Covid-19 and gender pay gap reporting.
She joins an expanded senior leadership team at Storegga, which recently welcomed Brandon Rennet, former CFO of Thames Water, as CFO; Alistair Buchanan, former CEO of Ofgem, as Chairman; and Sarah Willows, former KPMG CFO, as an independent non-executive director.
Nick Cooper, CEO of Storegga, said: “Reversing the damage of megatonnes of continuing carbon emissions is one of the most vital issues facing humanity. Governments have made legal commitments to rein these emissions in and we must do this in a way that is fair for all.
“The current energy crisis is a spotlight on this fairness issue. There is no more time to lose; we must start managing carbon out of the atmosphere now.
“Sorrelle is here to bang the drum for Storegga and our mission. Storegga has combined the leading UK talent and world class investors to contribute meaningfully to solving this global crisis.”
Ms Harper added: “Storegga is a very exciting, high growth business at the leading edge of efforts to solve the climate crisis. I said I would never work for the man again, but Nick and the team’s enthusiasm for such an important issue is infectious! Storegga’s is a brilliant story to tell, and I am looking forward to getting involved.”
