Shanks managing director Ian Goodfellow is leaving the waste management business after a decade with the company.
Goodfellow, left, who became MD in 2005, will finish in May to pursue other interests, according to a statement, and “support the business as needed thereafter”.
He will be replaced by Peter Eglinton, MD for Iron Mountain in UK, Ireland and Norway for the last four years. Iron Mountain specialises in records management, data protection and information destruction systems.
Eglington has also held senior management roles at Groupe Norbert Dentressangle, Christian Salvesen, DHL and Exel.
Shanks paid tribute to Goodfellow, saying he “played an important role in shaping our UK businesses by significantly increasing the size and the profitability of our PFI portfolio and leading our UK expansion into anaerobic digestion”.
Goodfellow was also the chairman of the Environmental Services Association for four years.
Peter Dilnot, Shanks chief executive, said: “I am delighted to welcome Peter [Eglington] to Shanks and look forward to working with him. He has a strong track record of delivering performance improvement in difficult markets, and has deep experience in logistics, continuous improvement and commercial effectiveness.
“Peter’s strong leadership will help us to grow the profitability of our UK business going forward.”
