Exelon Nuclear Partners Announces New China Representative
Announcement marks first step to expanded local presence
Beijing, China – Exelon Nuclear Partners today announced the appointment of a new locally-based China representative with the arrival of Steven P. Breeding Sr., Executive Director of Asia Pacific Business Development. Breeding will be based in Beijing, where he will work closely with China’s leading nuclear power operating companies to support safe, efficient, and reliable nuclear power development in China. Breeding will also be working across the region to support Exelon’s ongoing cooperative and commercial opportunities.
“I am tremendously excited about this personnel assignment and about the possibilities for Exelon Nuclear Partners in China. We first visited China two years ago, and in that time we have recognized that there is a clear demand for the experience, expertise, and market leadership that ENP represents,” says Amir Shahkarami, CEO of Exelon Nuclear Partners. “As a long-time Exelon engineer and team leader, Steven P. Breeding Sr. embodies all of our core values and ambitions for safe nuclear operations worldwide, and will be a great face for us here in Asia.”
Breeding enters China with over 27 years of nuclear operations experience, serving as a long-time Senior Reactor Operator overseeing the operations, work management, and engineering fields at two of Exelon’s flagship nuclear power generating stations. “Asia is at an important crossroads in nuclear power development, and the industry focus on safe nuclear power operations aligns perfectly with Exelon’s core values, making this a fascinating time to be here,” says Breeding.
This appointment continues to grow ENP’s presence in the important China market. “We have made China a clear priority in our international business development, as we see the greatest mutual benefit arising from cooperation with China’s leading operators,” says Thomas Mundy, President of Exelon Nuclear Partners.
