David Hess

Strategy & Communications

Prior to starting at DeepGEO in December 2023, David worked at World Nuclear Association for 14 years, most recently in the role of ESG programme lead, where he coordinated the Association’s response to the EU Taxonomy and conducted outreach to prominent financial companies and organisations. He was also part of the international outreach and policy team – the Harmony Programme – where he prepared position papers and consultation responses on behalf of the global nuclear industry and facilitated cooperation with intergovernmental bodies, such as the UN Economic Commission for Europe.

At DeepGEO, David is helping to develop partnerships with the nuclear industry and international organisations, as well as building up the company’s communication activities and supporting the regional teams. He firmly believes that multinational repositories are an idea whose time has finally come! David is motivated by sustainable development and is passionate about nuclear energy programmes in newcomer countries, as well as the emergence of new nuclear applications, technologies and opportunities. He describes himself as an industry advocate, is active on Twitter as @6point626 and writes a monthly opinion column for Nuclear Engineering International.
