The Waste Management Association of Australia (WMAA) has appointed Gayle Sloan as its new Chief Executive Officer.
Ms Sloan will start in post with WMAA on 7 November.
Making the announcement, WMAA President Miranda Ransome remarked on the incumbent’s “outstanding senior management skill set developed over 15 years working at senior levels in government and industry”.
Formerly with Visy Recycling, where she held roles in policy development and government relations, Ms Sloan also served almost ten years as a Director in NSW Local Councils in areas such as Community and Environmental Services.
Ms Ransome said these roles had given Ms Sloan strong insights into the waste and resource recovery industry from a broad range of perspectives.
“In addition to Gayle’s exceptional policy and waste industry credentials she brings with her an educational background in law, strong communication and strategic planning skills, event management experience and demonstrable experience in identifying stakeholders and working collaboratively to achieve results,” added Ms Ransome.
“I believe it’s a credit to the waste and resource recovery sector that WMAA has been able to attract such a high calibre senior manager to the role.”
In accepting the position as WMAA CEO, Ms Sloan commented that she “was very excited to have the opportunity to work with members across such a diverse and important industry”.
