Richard Gibson has been appointed head of operations by waste to energy company Convert2Green. His new role will include management of the company’s UK distribution & collection network and the primary processing operation, based in Middlewich, Cheshire.
Richard joins the team with over 15 years of distribution, project and change management experience within the food service industry. He has worked in a variety of roles for Brakes, 3663 and Fairfax Meadow.
"Bio-diesel is being more widely adopted by organisations with a fleet of vehicles who want to find a sustainable source of fuel to reduce carbon emissions and impact on the environment as part of their corporate social responsibility policies. A great example of this is our recent appointment by the Environment Agency to supply its vehicle fleet," said Richard Gibson, head of operations, Convert2Green.
"The wider waste to energy process undertaken in Convert2Green’s purpose built plant is powered by bio-fuel generators which customers are also adopting in their own buildings as a viable source of energy, with an option to become suppliers of renewable energy to the grid. I’m very much looking forward to working for Convert2Green in such a fast moving and growing industry – it’s an exciting place to be."
As depot general manager for 3663, Richard managed three sites as well as heading up a number of internal projects, whilst at Fairfax Meadow he worked on operational efficiency, managing the distribution depot and heading up a group project management team covering all areas within the organisation.
"It’s great that someone with Richard’s experience of operations and logistics as well as project management is joining the team," said Andy Webb, director, Convert2Green.
"Richard will be instrumental in helping to drive efficiencies in our operations, with our agents around the UK and fostering strong relationships with our customers in a growing market place."
