The organisers of RWM, i2i Events Group has appointed Barry Dennis as RWM Chairman. Recently retired as director general of the Environmental Services Association (ESA), Barry will work with the RWM team to help shape the strategic direction of the event, designed to support and showcase the innovations in the recycling and waste management industry during a period of dynamic change.
With over fifty years in the industry, Barry brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise with him. He helped oversee a raft of changes at the ESA, with its remit changing to focus more on policy and to lobby the Government on key issues, including waste crime, infrastructure investment and the circular economy. While at ESA, Barry was also sworn in as CIWM President in 2010/11, and remains on the board to this day. Barry is also a member of the WAMITAB board, representing the sector’s commitment to training, improving operating standards and promoting best practice.
