Former Shanks director Peter Sharpe has been appointed as managing director of LondonWaste.
He will assume the role on 3 August after replacing David Sargent, who has been in the position for 15 years.
LondonWaste is owned by the North London Waste Authority (NLWA) and is contracted to provide waste management services to its seven London boroughs.
Sharpe, left, was a director at Shanks from 2007 until 2009.
“With LondonWaste at the heart of NLWA’s longer term plans, this role is tremendously exciting with lots of challenges and opportunities ahead,” he said.
“I am looking forward to working with an experienced board and management team at LondonWaste and building on the company’s successes.”
Sharpe’s appointment lands as the NLWA’s consultation on a proposed heat and power project ends.
The project includes a £450m-£500m recovery facility at Edmonton EcoPark, Enfield.
Comments will be analysed before a finalised scheme is submitted to the Planning Inspectorate in the autumn.
