The Chartered Institution of Wastes Management (CIWM) has appointed LARAC CEO Lee Marshall as its new policy and external affairs director.
Marshall has at least 25 years of experience in the UK waste and recycling sector, having held several senior roles in both the public and private sectors. He joins CIWM from LARAC (the Local Authority Recycling Advisory Committee), where he spent seven years with the body as its chief executive officer.
He will be leaving his current position and taking up his new role from 1st December.
Marshall, a fellow of CIWM, has brought his resource management and local authority expertise to two government advisory panels on packaging and waste electrical equipment and is a non-executive director of OPRL Ltd. He holds a master’s degree in public administration.
Reporting to group CEO, Sarah Poulter, Marshall will take on responsibility for the strategic development, management and delivery of CIWM’s policy, technical and knowledge capability. As part of the leadership and management teams, he will play a key role in influencing governments and key decision-makers at local, national and global levels. He will also provide support to a range of key stakeholders including members, employees, centre councils, the board of trustees and the presidential team.
Poulter said: “Lee is hugely respected across the entire resource and waste management sector and his appointment will further bolster what is already an outstanding CIWM leadership team. CIWM is committed to a world beyond waste and Lee will play a vital role in ensuring we continue to support our members in leading the development of more resource-efficient and circular economies.”
Marshall added: “This is an amazing opportunity to join an organisation which is firmly positioned at the forefront of the battle against resource scarcity and climate change. I look forward to leading CIWM’s policy and technical capability and helping to harness its creative and innovative thinking to bring about meaningful change.”
