The Chartered Institution of Wastes Management (CIWM) has announced the appointment of a new trustee board which has been “significantly reduced to streamline and improve responsiveness”.
The board will be in post with effect from 13th November and comprises the five members of the CIWM presidential team and seven trustees.
According to the CIWM, the new trustee board has been appointed using a skills-based selection process designed to ensure that CIWM “has the right balance of expertise for the future”.
It confirmed that the size of the board has also been reduced from 27 in order to “bring CIWM’s governance structure in line with current best practice for charities”.
The new trustees are:
· Dan Cooke, Group Head of Sustainability, Pennon Group,
· Marcus Gover, Chief Executive, WRAP
· Wayne Hubbard, Chief Executive, London Waste & Recycling Board
· Vicki Hughes, Group Business Development Director, Enva Wood Recycling
· Liz Parkes, Deputy Director Climate Change, Environment Agency
· Tim Walker, Acting Chief Executive, Arc21
· Lyndon Ward, Group CEO, Forward Waste Management Ltd
This board will also include the CIWM presidential team of Trevor Nicoll, the CIWM President for 2019/20, Adam Read, Senior Vice-President, Anna Willetts, Junior Vice President, Enda Kiernan, Immediate Past President, and John Kutner, CIWM Honorary Treasurer.
The changes to the structure and selection process for Trustees have been part of a wider programme of constitutional change approved by CIWM Trustees and the Privy Council over the last two years.
Other measures to make CIWM more effective and relevant have included modernising the membership grade structure to “better reflect the needs of modern resources and waste professionals”.
Commenting after announcing the new board, 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.”
