Engineering firm Technip Energies' board plans to nominate Colette Cohen for appointment as a non-executive director at the company’s 2022 Annual General Meeting of Shareholders.
Colette Cohen OBE is the Chief Executive Officer for the Net Zero Technology Centre, a UK organization previously known as Oil and Gas Technology Centre, and OGTC.

Joseph Rinaldi, Chairman of the Board of Technip Energies, declared: "I am delighted that Colette has agreed to be nominated to join the Technip Energies Board. With over two decades of expertise in the energy sector, the leadership role she is playing in the industrial transformation of the sector towards a net-zero future and her well-recognized advocacy for women in industry, Colette will be a valuable addition to the Board. I look forward to welcoming Colette to the Board.”
Colette Cohen has a degree in Pure & Applied Chemistry from Queen’s University Belfast, as well as a master’s in Project Management & Economics from CERAM (France) and an honorary PhD from Aberdeen University.
She was formerly a Commissioner for the Just Transition Commission for Scotland and a member of the Technology Leadership Board for the UK Government.

Until the Technip Energies AGM, Cohen will attend meetings of the Board of Directors as an observer.
