“Cleanaway is not only a well performing business, but excitingly is also ideally positioned to capture emerging waste streams and future re-use opportunities,” he said.
Schubert will commence the role in the new financial year. Cleanaway Executive Chairman Mark Chellew will remain Executive Chairman until this time, with support from Chief Operating Officer Brendan Gill.
According to Chellew, Schubert brings a wealth of senior executive experience, and has proven his ability to lead large and complex businesses.
“He inherits a business in a strong financial position, and which is well positioned to further leverage our leading market footprint and infrastructure,” he said.
“Mark will work with our executive team to build on the momentum in our business including our recently announced asset acquisitions from Suez.”
