Waste management and recycling specialist B&M Waste Services has made two key appointments as it continues to expand its operations across the UK.
Industry experts Graeme Knight and Amber Greenhalgh have taken up positions as Major Accounts Director and Commercial Director respectively, bringing more than 24 years of combined experience in the waste management sector.
Graeme Knight said; “Having started my career as a chemist in the paint industry I worked my way from the laboratory through technical sales and into management at both General Manager and Director level. I have now worked in the waste industry for over 12 years and have carried out a variety of duties in my role as General Manager involving Operations, Health and safety, Environmental compliance as well as Sales and Account management. Since joining B&M in 2016 I have worked on the growth of the National business and took over the management of the Major Accounts department in January this year. I am very proud to work with such a talented and dedicated team and to be accepted onto the board of this exceptional company is a great honour.”
Amber Greenhalgh commented ““I started my career as a Charity Fundraiser for the Liverpool Anglican Cathedral, writing bids and trust applications and organising high profile events. Using these skills, I followed my heart into the waste and recycling industry over 12 years ago, and I haven’t looked back. I have learnt so much along the way; qualifying as a Dangerous Good Safety Advisor (DGSA), IOSH, Business Management and Leadership Graduate, qualifying as a certified NLP Coach, and most importantly, I’ve learnt how to build and maintain lasting, positive relationships with customers, colleagues and direct reports.
“I have thoroughly enjoyed the last 12 months with B&M overseeing regional and corporate sales growth and opportunities and I would like to thank everyone for their support… I am truly proud to call myself Director and be part of such a forward thinking, innovative business”
The Curtis family have consistently lead B&M from the front, mastering the ability to outperform national companies whilst retaining the culture and values of a family run business. The company has successfully recruited and harnessed the skills of industry experts, thus developing an experienced and loyal team. The result is unparalleled national success for a company of its size.
The company continues to innovate and lead the way in waste management strategies and waste handling techniques, working closely with customers to add value and develop long term relationships with suppliers and clients.
Amber and Graeme continued “We are both so very proud to work with such a talented and dedicated team and to be accepted onto the board of this exceptional company is a great honour. We will work now to further accelerate the growth and success of B&M Waste.”
B&M Managing Director Neil Curtis said: “We are delighted to have strengthened our team in central areas which we believe can help take us to the next level of growth. With their quality of industry experience, Graeme and Amber are fantastic additions to the board; both have strong leadership skills and focus, with a real passion for everything we do.”
