James Piper takes over day-to-day running of ecosurety.
ecosurety, one of the fastest-growing resource efficiency specialists in the UK, has appointed commercial head James Piper to the role of managing director. James started at ecosurety in 2009 as a graduate trainee.
His new role will include developing the company’s strategic direction in conjunction with ecosurety’s board. He will also continue to support relationships with ecosurety’s largest brand members, which include The Co-operative, Mars and Britvic.
James will oversee the appointment of an operations director and a number of non-executive advisors as part of ecosurety’s vision to become the most popular compliance services provider for companies affected by producer responsibility regulations.
He is currently leading a new scheme called Circularety, due to be unveiled in September, which aims to increase transparency inside the PRN system. James was also recently named South West Young Director of the Year by the Institute of Directors, and is now in the running for the IoD National Young Director of the Year Award, to be announced in October.
James says, “It’s exciting to take a lead role in one of the most dynamic and forward-looking organisations in the waste and recycling industry. I’ve had fantastic support from an incredible team and I look forward to working with them to grow the business to the next stage.”
