Beal takes over as MD of WLWA

Written by: Editorial staff | Published:

The West London Waste Authority (WLWA) has appointed Emma Beal as its new managing director.

"Emma now leads the authority in setting its future direction in managing its waste services contract with Suez Recycling and Recovery UK," said Bassam Mahfouz, chair of the authority and cabinet member for environment, transport and leisure at Ealing Council. "She will also be developing WLWA’s waste management strategy with its constituent boroughs Brent, Ealing, Harrow, Hillingdon, Hounslow and Richmond upon Thames, and creating opportunities for increased recycling and organic waste treatment."

Formerly an employee of Suez (previously SITA UK) since 1998, Beal had various operational and commercial roles working with both waste collection and waste disposal authorities. Most recently she was its head of public sector development in the south east and head of its west London PPP contract.

At WLWA she replaces Jim Brennan who stepped down as MD earlier in the year after overseeing the tender and contract process that appointed Suez.

Mahfouz added: “We've achieved a great deal over the past few years, commissioning a new plant that will mean virtually none of west London's waste will be sent to landfill, and building an award winning waste minimisation team.

“Emma will help us ensure we get the best deals for west London, alongside us being a leading example of joint working and a prominent voice for waste minimisation and recycling.”

Beal said: “I am so pleased to have this exciting opportunity to develop the next phase of west London’s strategy. We will focus on increasing recycling, the collection of organic materials and minimising waste.

“I’m looking forward to developing the contracts and partnerships which will create value from our resources and infrastructure,” added the new WLWA MD.
