Lucy Edge of Avanti Communications joins Eden Project board

Lucy Edge, general manager of Avanti Communications at Goonhilly on the Lizard Peninsula, has been appointed a non-executive director on the board of Eden Project Ltd.

Lucy is a physicist and engineer and a leading figure in Cornwall’s growing space industry. She set up the Avanti Communications Spacecraft Operations Centre, which operates a fleet of satellites providing global communications, and has managed the launch of rockets bearing satellites now controlled from Cornwall.

She is also a non-executive director on the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Local Enterprise Partnership, reflecting her passion for economic growth, inclusion and skills development. Outside work she is a keen athlete, having represented Great Britain in the triathlon.

Announcing the appointment, Eden’s chief executive Gordon Seabright said: “Lucy has built a reputation around Cornwall for her commitment to our economic growth and championing creativity across all sectors.

“We’re thrilled to welcome her to the Eden Project board, and excited to be able to benefit from her expertise around science, diversity and a wealth of other subjects. Lucy’s appointment is another sign of Eden’s passion for playing our full part in Cornwall’s success.”

Lucy Edge said: “The Eden Project is proving the good that can happen when people are connected. There’s so much more to come from Gordon and the team – I’m looking forward to being part of it.”
