Former May Gurney waste chief Nicola Peake has joined Kier’s environmental services division, MRW has learned.
Peake recently parted company with May Gurney, whose environmental services division she led for four years, to “pursue other opportunities”.
She told MRW this week: “Joining Kier represents an exciting challenge and I look forward to growing the business. It’s a positive move for me.”
Kier’s 600-staff environmental services business has a roster of clients including local authorities, government agencies and private industry.
Recent developments included winning an eight-year contract to handle the London borough of Waltham Forest’s residual and recycling collections.
MRW has reported that May Gurney placed operations director Steve Jennings and managing director of public sector services John Wilkinson in charge of the environmental services business.
A spokesman said: “Nicola made a great contribution to the business during her time with us and we wish her well in the future.
“May Gurney provides environmental services to 20 local authorities and serves 2.2 million households.
“We remain committed to building this area of our business and have recently won a number of contracts, including providing household waste and recycling services for Bristol City Council and for West Oxfordshire District Council.”
