WMAA announces new CEO

The Waste Management Association of Australia (WMAA) would like to announce Gayle Sloan as the new WMAA Chief Executive Officer.

Gayle has outstanding senior management skills developed over 15 years working at senior levels in government and industry.

Roles in policy development and government relations at Visy Recycling, combined with almost 10 years as a Director in NSW Local Councils in areas such as Community and Environmental Services, have given Gayle strong insights into the waste and resource recovery industry, as well as working with government to achieve change 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.

It is 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 this role Gayle stated that she "was very excited to have the opportunity to work with members across such a diverse and important industry".

Gayle will begin work at WMAA on 7 November, 2016.
