ACOR welcomes new Chief Executive Officer

The Australian Council of Recycling (ACOR) has announced the appointment of Suzanne Toumbourou as the organisation’s new Chief Executive Officer, effective from 5 July.

“The recycling sector is experiencing unprecedented momentum, with multi-partisan support for ACOR’s vision of a thriving and sustainable resource recovery and recycling industry,” Toumbourou said.

“A booming circular economy will be central to Australia’s ongoing sustainability, economic prosperity and sovereignty.

“I am thrilled to be working with ACOR to support this vital sector in delivering great outcomes for industry, people and the planet.”

According to ACOR President Peter Tamblyn, Toumbourou brings a wealth of experience in policy development, strategy and leadership, as CEO of the Australian Sustainable Built Environment Council since 2012.

“Suzanne has a strong reputation as a collaborative leader with a great track record in strategic engagement and policy impact for a more sustainable Australia,” he said.

“We are excited to work with Suzanne in advancing the opportunity to support and grow the recycling market.”

Tamblyn added that the ACOR Board are delighted to have attracted a candidate of Toumbourou’s credentials and experience, and believed it reflected the growing importance of recycling and the circular economy to Australia’s economic and environmental future.

He also acknowledged the “invaluable contribution” of ACOR’s Interim CEO, Cameron O’Reilly, who led a governance review to bolster the organisation’s operational sustainability.
