CIWM appoints new trustee board

Written by: Maddie Ballard | Published:

The Chartered Institute of Waste Management (CIWM) has appointed a new trustee board, which will take effect from 13 November.

The board now consists of the presidential team along with seven new trustees.

The presidential team is made up of Trevor Nicoll, president; Adam Read, senior vice-president; Anna Willetts, junior vice-president; Enda Kiernan, immediate past president; and John Kutner, honorary treasurer.

The trustees are Dan Cooke, group head of sustainability at the Pennon Group; Marcus Gover, chief executive at WRAP; Wayne Hubbard, chief executive at London Waste & Recycling Board; Vicki Hughes, group business development director at Enva Wood Recycling; Liz Parkes, deputy director of climate change at the Environment Agency; Tim Walker, acting chief executive at Arc21; and Lyndon Ward, group CEO at Forward Waste Management.

The new board has been appointed using a new skills-based selection process.

Its size has also been reduced from previous years so that decisions can be made faster and CIWM can be more directly responsive to enquiries.

The changes to the structure and selection process for trustees have been part of a wider programme of change approved by CIWM trustees and the privy council over the last two years.

They come alongside changes to the membership grade structure.

Several existing grades have now been merged under the ‘associate’ grade umbrella, meaning those who want to achieve ‘chartered’ and ‘fellow’ status have a clearer path to do so.

Sarah Poulter, CIWM chief executive, said: “We are delighted to announce the new board and each of the new trustees brings with them a wealth of experience, an in-depth understanding of the resources and waste sector, and the right range of skills to ensure that CIWM is fit for the future.

“I would also like to thank the outgoing trustees who have worked incredibly hard to deliver CIWM’s programme of change and modernisation of the last two years.”

Founded in 1898, the CIWM is the leading professional body for the resource and waste management sector. It represents around 5,600 individuals in the UK, Ireland and overseas.
