Steve Lee Confirmed As Director General of Resources & Waste UK

Steve-Lee-no-cut-out-wide-web-e1461140556857-472x300CIWM and the Environmental Services Association (ESA) have today (15 August) announced that Steve Lee will continue in his role leading Resources & Waste UK (R&WUK), the joint policy and influencing body created in 2014.

Steve Lee announced at the beginning of the year that he will be stepping down as chief executive of CIWM at the end of October 2016.

Peter Gerstrom, Chairman of ESA and R&WUK Board Member – “It is essential that we develop the work that has already been achieved by ESA and CIWM through this body, and sustain the momentum gathered in championing the resource and waste management industry to government.”

CIWM and ESA recognise that the political, economic and technical environment in which this industry operates, together with new pressures and responsibilities arising from the decision for the UK to leave the EU, make the need for a co-ordinated voice for the industry more important than ever.

As Director General of R&WUK, Steve will be working closely with senior managers, board members and Trustees of both organisations, including the new CIWM CEO Dr Colin Church, to champion the needs and priorities of the sector and ensure its continued success.

Professor Jim Baird, President of CIWM and R&WUK Board member, said:
“Our industry faces challenges and opportunities – and responsibilities – that are greater than ever. Continued collaborative working between our two organisations is essential and we are delighted to confirm that Steve will continue to lead and support us in that work.”

Peter Gerstrom, Chairman of ESA and R&WUK Board Member, said:
“I am pleased that Steve has agreed to continue in his role at the head of R&WUK. It is essential that we develop the work that has already been achieved by ESA and CIWM through this body, and sustain the momentum gathered in championing the resource and waste management industry to government.

“With Steve remaining in the role, we can continue that work without interruption.”
