Viridor chief executive announced

Viridor’s parent company Pennon Group has appointed Ian McAulay as Viridor’s chief executive and executive director of the Pennon Group.

This follows the announcement in March that longstanding Viridor chief executive Colin Drummond was to retire.

Ken Harvey, Pennon Group chairman, said: “[McAulay] brings with him extensive experience of developing and delivering large-scale, capital-intensive infrastructure projects in both regulated and unregulated businesses and management of major complex organisations, which I believe will prove invaluable to the company.”

McAulay is currently chief of global strategy and corporate development with water treatment company MWH Global in the US. His responsibilities include strategic planning and execution, corporate development, mergers and acquisitions, and operational management of MWH’s ResourceNet business in Pune, India. 

As well as being a chartered civil engineer, he has completed Harvard Business School’s Advanced Management Programme and Cambridge University’s Business and Environment Programme.

Drummond said he was delighted with McAulay’s appointment to lead and develop the firm.

“Viridor has secured an enviable pipeline of public-private partnerships and a £1.5bn investment programme to build green infrastructure to maximise recycling and energy generation from waste,” he added.
