Chris has worked in the waste management industry for more than 25 years, with senior roles in both contracting and consultancy. This has covered all commercial aspects in the roles of the public and private sectors of the waste industry, including strategy and business development.

He played a key role in taking Waste Recycling Group from a regional player to the UK’s largest waste disposal contractor through an aggressive programme of price-leadership, organic growth and acquisitions. As the Group’s Commercial Director whilst a public limited company and under private equity ownership, Chris was responsible for the local authority and national commercial contract portfolio, tendering and PFI projects, marketing and the acquisition of businesses and land.

He joined New Earth to develop its emerging renewable energy business and became Managing Director of the group during 2009. With new local authority contracts, the delivery of new waste treatment facilities and the roll-out of new systems and practices, New Earth was established as a leading independent waste treatment and renewable energy developer and operator, with annual turnover of more than £30million. He handed over day-to-day running of the business in 2012 and has remained as a Non-Executive Director.
