Graveson takes top Veolia role in UK and Ireland

Gavin Graveson has been appointed Veolia’s executive vice-president for the UK and Ireland for Veolia.

He has been chief operating officer, public and commercial, in the UK responsible for municipal and collection services, treatment, recycling, landfill and Veolia’s 13 PFI and public partnership contracts.

Graveson succeeds Estelle Brachlianoff, who has been promoted to chief operating officer of the Veolia group, based in Paris.

He said: “As we face the challenges of preserving the environment and serving growing populations, communities need to be bolder and recognise that the circular economy is the right model to deliver a sustainable future.

“We must take action and set out long-term goals and commitments to use our resources more efficiently to meet these ever-increasing demands in a more sustainable way.”

Veolia Group has also appointed Claude Laruelle as chief financial officer while Jean-François Nogrette will head its global enterprises operation.

Brachlianoff moves on after six years in post. She joined Veolia Environnement in 2005 as special adviser to the chief executive of waste management. She was then in charge of waste management in the greater Paris area and also of the facility management and cleaning services branch.
