Price in at Enva Wood with Hadfield trio departing

Enva Wood has announced that Tim Price, former operations director at Veolia Energy, has been appointed as managing director.

Mr Price joins in advance of the departure of Geoff Hadfield, Vicki Hughes and Paul Harrison who have led the business since Hadfield Wood Recyclers was acquired by Enva in December 2018 (see story).

Enva announced the shakeup on 1 October

The departure of the trio is thought to have been planned from when the acquisition of Hadfield — which operated under the UK Wood Recycling name — was completed.

The trio will stay with the company “over the next few months” to help the managing director, and will then continue to work together in a separate business.

Vicki Hughes will remain with Enva ‘for the next few months’ to help the transition

Vicki Hughes will also remain a trustee with CIWM and will continue on the board of the Wood Recyclers’ Association.


Tom Walsh, Enva chief executive, commented: “Since it was acquired, Wood Recycling has been a successful addition to the Enva portfolio. Over the past two years, as part of a transition plan, Geoff, Vicki and Paul have been actively handing over responsibilities within the business to their senior management team, so we are now in a position where there is a strong team to support Tim in his new role as MD.

“As part of this transition Geoff, Vicki and Paul will support Tim over the next few months as he builds his understanding of Enva Wood Recycling and how we operate.

“I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Geoff, Vicki, and Paul for all their hard work over the last 3 years in leading the business and welcome Tim to this key role within Enva, as we look forward to developing our wood recycling business further.”

He previously worked at Dalkia and Veolia Energy UK for over eight years as operations director, before moving to run partnerships with Diageo Cameron Bridge Renewable Energy Facility and the Leeds Recycling and Energy Recovery Facility.
