CIWM announces changes to its Trustee Board
CIWM has announced changes to its Board of Trustees.
Following a recent assessment process, the selection committee proposed the re-appointment of three existing Trustees, reflecting the confidence in the existing governance structure. Dr Adam Read, Wayne Hubbard and Marcus Gover were all re-appointed to the Board on 29 June 2023 and will each serve a three-year term through to the 2026 Presidential inauguration.
Each year, CIWM requests applications from its members to become Trustees. Applications are then assessed by a selection panel, which includes CIWM members and a non-member, against a skills matrix that outlines the skills needed on the board.
In addition to the reappointments of Adam, Wayne and Marcus, Dr David Greenfield has also become a Trustee following his appointment as Junior Vice President, which took place last week.
Lyndon Ward ended his term as a Trustee to focus on exciting developments at his business, Forward Waste. Since joining the Board in November 2019, he has been a member of the Audit and Risk Committee and has provided significant support on various key projects, including the merger of CIWM and WAMITAB.
Liz Parkes, CIWM Board Chair, commented: “Our Board of Trustees are fundamental to the effective running of CIWM, and we are delighted to welcome back Adam, Wayne and Marcus for a further term, helping us deliver our purpose to move the world beyond waste. I would also like to take this opportunity to personally thank Lyndon for his commitment and dedication during his time on the Board and wish him every success for the future.”
The selection committee were pleased to see applications from a variety of members this year, and encourage members from all areas of the sector to consider applying in 2024 to ensure our Trustees reflect the diversity of CIWM’s membership. The Board have also invited those who have not been successful in their Trustee applications to get involved with CIWM in other ways.
CIWM’s Trustees are selected by skill set and are at the head of CIWM’s governance structure. You can find out more about our Board of Trustees at
