WRAP CEO to leave at the end of the year

Dr Marcus Gover, chief executive of resources charity WRAP, has announced he will be leaving at the end of the year after six years in the role.

Dr Gover wished the organisation “all the best in the future”, adding that he leaves knowing he has given WRAP “the confidence to go global and develop the vision, ambition and capacity to be a key player in the journey to net zero”.

He continued that he is “immensely proud” of what the group has achieved under his tenure. “I feel privileged to have worked with some incredibly talented and passionate people.”


The move comes amid a lot of change for the resource charity.

Also leaving WRAP will be chair Julie Hill, who stands down in October at the end of her second term.

She said: “Under Marcus’ leadership, WRAP has made significant progress over the last few years, including the growth of our international work, the expansion of the Plastics Pact and Courtauld Commitment and the launch of Textiles 2030, WRAP has and will continue to make a real difference to the world we live in.

Ms Hill explained that she and Dr Gover are working together “to find the right people to take WRAP on the next stage of its journey”.
