Sterecycle takes on top industry figure

A fast-growing waste management company has shown its ambition by taking a senior official from one of the largest players in the UK sector.

Sterecycle which has offices in London and Manchester has recently recruited as its development director Alistair Shotliff who enjoyed a very successful period as projects director for Waste Recycling Group (WRG).

Shotliff led the recent central Berkshire private finance initiative (PFI) contract from tender through to preferred bidder negotiation and closure. The £600 million 25 year deal was WRGs first PFI contract.

Sterecycle chief executive Duncan Grierson said: We are very pleased to welcome Alistair on board. He brings over 20 years of waste management experience and is joining at a time of exciting developments for Sterecycle.

Our first plant in the UK is nearly complete and we have been short-listed for several local authority contracts.

The company now has 13 full-time staff working on the advanced recycling system for unsorted household waste that it has developed using an autoclave process to produce a high biomass fibre.

As well as the acquisition of Shotliff, the company has welcomed on board leading environmental investors such as Goldman Sachs International, Impax Group and Ailsa3 Ventures over the past year. These have helped it raise £10 million in equity finance.
