Nordic Windpower Ltd., with U.S. operations in Berkeley, Calif., has announced that two executives from renewable and wind energy corporations have joined the company as advisors.

Patricia Bellinger, previously one of the top 40 executives at BP with experience in building diversity and inclusion programs, has been appointed to the Nordic Windpower board of directors. In addition, Nils Nerback, a finance, merger and acquisition specialist previously with Vattenfall, a wind energy producer in the Nordic region, will serve as a special advisor to the Nordic board.

"Nordic Windpower is especially pleased that these leaders from top renewable and wind energy corporations will be advising the company as it grows its business and a talented and diverse workforce," says Steve Taber, CEO of Nordic Windpower.

Bellinger, a Harvard graduate, developed and led BP's global diversity and inclusion efforts. She subsequently created a comprehensive leadership development program for BP's top 150 executives worldwide.

Nerback is chief financial officer of one of the three divisions of Kwintet, a European supplier of professional and work wear. From 2002 to 2007, he held executive positions at Vattenfall, a Swedish utility. He received degrees from Uppsala University in Sweden.
