Peter Seggie, recovered paper sector manager at the Confederation of Paper Industries, has changed roles to become the general secretary at the Recycling Association.
He replaces David Symmers who retired at the end of last year. The appointment adds to an expanding team at the Association, which represents UK recycling interests around the world.
MRW understands the CPI has not yet appointed anyone as the new recovered paper sector manager but the recruitment process is under way.
Seggie said: “The Recycling Association has set out a clear development strategy and I am pleased and excited to be part of it. The recycling industry continues to show strong growth with significant new entries who will all benefit from a strong trade association. My role will be to ensure members interests are fully represented to other industry stakeholders.”
Seggie has a strong background in trade association business, holding his role at the CPI for seven years. The Recycling Association expects his industry experience to improve its service to members as it develops within a growing market.
Recycling Association chief executive Simon Ellin added: “Peter is another strong addition to an exciting team being formed at the Recycling Association and will offer significant member benefits. Peter’s experience in influencing and shaping waste and recycling policy at a European, national and local level will mean member’s interests are fully carried to those that will set the framework that members work under for years to come.”
