Scotland-based food waste recycling firm, Keenan Recycling, has appointed mergers and acquisitions specialist, Ritchie Clark, as its first commercial director.

For the past six years, Clark, a qualified chartered accountant, worked in banking and equity with the Bank of Scotland before holding a director position with international investment banking firm, Simmons and Company, specialising in managing and advising on deals in the energy industry.

He said: “I specifically wanted to be part of an owner managed company and Keenan Recycling has a vast amount of growth opportunities on the horizon which will allow me to bring my M&A expertise to the fore.

“I’m commercially focussed and strategic in my approach so I will be well placed to guide them on future deals across the UK.”

Managing director of Keenan Recycling, Grant Keenan, said he sees Clark's appointment as a crucial role in helping to shape the future growth of the firm to a wider market.

The MD stated: “We are focussed on growing through acquisition and our decision to bring this level of expertise to the board will support and drive our ambitious growth plans.

“Ritchie’s depth of experience from previous senior roles will help us to consider the bigger picture when approaching potential deals in the future.”

Keenan Recycling launched its commercial food waste collection scheme in 2010 to help businesses divert food waste away from landfill, and it now has a team of 80 employees across the north east and central belt.
