THE Corporate team at UKWSL, led by Dave Gudgeon, has recently been expanded with the appointment of Darren Perks as corporate account manager.
Darren joins the Newark-based firm with a wealth of experience in the UK waste brokerage industry and will be primarily focusing his attentions on the construction, hospitality and retail and leisure sectors of the market.
Darren started his working life in the military before heading to sunnier climes and a very different career working for Club 18-30 in Ibiza, Mallorca and Greece. The allure of the waste and recycling sector finally proved too hard to resist and Darren started out at Countrywide Waste in Customer Services, latterly acquired by Reconomy.
Max Kanda, managing director of UKWSL, commented: “Darren has already proven himself to be an invaluable addition to our Corporate team. We welcome his hands-on approach and innate ability to build long-lasting and consistent client relationships across a wide range of sectors. We are particularly excited by his innovative ideas on further developing our business in the construction sector.”
