The Recycling Association in the UK has appointed Paul Sanderson as its new chief executive, while Chris Burton will become the new managing director of its subsidiary IWPP Limited.
Simon Ellin, currently chief executive of both The Recycling Association and IWPP, has announced his retirement at the end of March.
Mr Sanderson currently runs the recycling news and information service REB Market Intelligence. He will join The Recycling Association on 1 March and his recycling market news service REB Market Intelligence will be integrated into the work of the Association, becoming a member benefit later in the year.
Mr Sanderson said: "Having worked with The Recycling Association for many years now, I am excited to take on the role of its chief executive and build on the foundations achieved by Simon, Chris, the board, the team in Daventry and the membership. Chris Burton and I have a close working relationship, and we'll work together to ensure the future success of The Recycling Association and IWPP. I also look forward to working closely with the United Kingdom Security Shredding Association and its members on their priorities. I'm also keen to push forward the further success of Traqa, that has been developed by The Recycling Association to help track waste shipments."
Mr Sanderson will be responsible for the membership of The Recycling Association, policy development, communications, events and driving forward the Traqa product along with Lee Thickett and Mike Jackson. He will also become secretary of the United Kingdom Security Shredding Association.
Mr Burton was previously commercial director of IWPP, which is the trading subsidiary company that helps to fund the activities of The Recycling Association.
He commented: "Becoming the managing director of IWPP is a huge honour and I'm looking forward to working with Arlene and Donna in Daventry, the board and of course Paul to take it forward. My priority will be to continue to strengthen relationships with new and existing customers and grow IWPP to help fund The Recycling Association and the work it does for its members."
