CIWM has announced that Colin Church will be stepping down from his role as chief executive at the end of September to take up a new chief executive job.
Before leaving, he will be working with senior management and CIWM Trustees to complete a CIWM Action Plan to design a refreshed structure.
His role will be replaced by group director of membership and funding Sarah Poulter who will be interim chief executive from 1 October.
CIWM executive committee chair Margaret Bates said: “CIWM would like to thank Colin for so ably steering CIWM through a period of change and refocus, as a result of which the Institution is in the process of modernising its structure to be more dynamic and responsive, refreshing and improving its membership offer, and prioritising its work to reflect the needs of today’s resource and waste sector. We wish Colin well in his new role and we look forward to continuing the work he has initiated to ensure that CIWM is fit for the future.”
