Paul Ozanne to say farewell to SATCOL

Paul Ozanne, national recycling coordinator for the Salvation Army Trading Company (SATCOL), is to retire after eight and a half years at the organisation.

He leaves on 31 March to be replaced by several staff rather than one person. SATCOL will soon have a full-time media manager, a web manager and a fifth regional manager.

Ozanne told MRW he has been proud to work for the organisation, which has given the Salvation Army around £22.5m in the last three years to be invested back into the community.

The organisation has continued to be profitable despite tough market conditions.

Ozanne said: “This last year we budgeted for 10% reduction in collections, but we are 6-8% up for the first 10 months. We don’t understand why but we are delighted.”

He added that SATCOL has an advantage because people trust the Salvation Army and are aware that it is one of few charities that carries out its own collections.

He said: “The whole eight and a half years has been a total high. It’s a very addictive industry.”

See next week’s issue of MRW for a full interview with Ozanne.
