Wastecycle, the East Midlands’ leading resource management and recycling company, has strengthened its senior management team with the appointment of Richard Dolben as General Manager – Recycling.
Richard, 52, joined the company at the start of this month following a reorganisation, which sees Kevan Wilcockson move from Director of Recycling to the newly created role of Compliance and Development Director.
In the role of General Manager – Recycling, Richard will be responsible for all of the operational aspects of Wastecycle’s Nottingham recycling centre, reporting to Managing Director, Paul Needham.
“Wastecycle has just enjoyed an amazing year and we’re very optimistic about the future,” says Paul. “We’re confident of achieving our ambitious growth targets. In order to do so, we will need to continue our track record of improving processes and meeting the increasing regulatory compliance. Bringing Richard into the business will help us achieve these goals.
“Richard has over 20 years of management experience, gained at companies including Jeld Wen Ltd to draw upon. His proven ability to lead cross-functional teams and deliver continuous improvement will be incredibly helpful to us as we strive to grow Wastecycle further. During the recruitment process, he suggested several new initiatives that we will be exploring. We’re very much looking forward to working with him.
“Richard’s appointment allows Kevan to move from his previous role to the newly created position of Compliance and Development Director. The recycling industry is one of the most regulated in the country and, by having someone at senior level monitoring the ever-changing situation, we will ensure Wastecycle continues to be fully compliant with its obligations.”
Mr Dolben is excited to be joining Wastecycle at such a significant time in the company’s development: “Last financial year was Wastecycle’s most profitable. The challenge is to maintain momentum and to find new ways of working more effectively and efficiently. I’m looking forward to working with the team here and helping Paul and the rest of the senior management team realise their ambitions.”
