"I love the Totus approach to solving complex customer challenges"
With over 25 years’ experience within the Chemical and Waste Management industries, I joined Totus in September 2022 to provide clients with an alternative waste recovery solution via European outlets. I started my career in the Chemical Industry working with Sulphuric acid and Chlorine at Hays Chemicals. My first waste management role was in 2001 for Cleanaway, later Veolia where I held technical sales roles and had responsibility for third party waste inputs into Ellesmere Port incinerator and Preston solvent recovery site from the UK and Ireland / Channel Islands, which led to my first experience of TFS. Subsequent roles at Acumen and Adler and Allan incorporated a greater focus into Industrial Services including industrial spill response, site clean ups and technical waste disposal.
Having spent years' in various roles within the industry and dealing with a number of large projects, I love the Totus approach to solving complex customer challenges. At Totus, I am increasing increase my waste knowledge by managing TFS exports into Europe and new business opportunities for waste exports, as well as looking after a select number of Totus customers. Going forward, I will also be using my knowledge of Industrial Services to develop any cross-selling opportunities through the Group.
Outside of work I am a keen motorcyclist and enjoy riding out with friends, I also enjoy spending time with my family at our caravan in the Lake District.
