Ellgia appoints Marshall as general manager
Ely waste management and recycling company Ellgia has appointed a new general manager, Gareth Marshall.
With more than 16 years’ experience in the waste management industry, Mr Marshall is taking over the role after the retirement of Ian McLees, Ellgia’s previous General Manager. He will be responsible for running three depots at Ely, Prickwillow and Boston.
Jack Lavington, Ellgia operations director, said: “We are excited to have Gareth on board as he has excellent experience and a proven track record within the waste management sector. Ellgia has ambitious plans for the future and we believe Gareth has the right knowledge and skills to help us on our journey.”
Previously Gareth was Operations Director for Environmental Waste Controls and prior to that he worked in various waste management companies throughout East Anglia, first of all in transport operations and later developing a materials recycling facility.
Gareth Marshall said: “I can’t wait to get stuck in and be part of the great team here at Ellgia. I am already impressed with the ambition and drive of the directors.”
Operations began at Ellgia in 2011, and since then the business has seen growth partly through a series of strategic acquisitions .
