The Waste Management and Resource Recovery Association of Australia (WMRR) is pleased to announce its Board of Directors for 2024-26.

Following a call for nominations, WMRR is excited to announce incumbent Director Isabel Axiö as the new National Vice President and joining the Board are Michelle Mandl as a Nominated Director and Katherine Dodd as an Elected Director.

Ms Axiö, a Senior Consultant at RMCG, has been a WMRR Director since 2022, while Ms Mandl, who is General Manager – Communications, Customer and Engagement at TOMRA Cleanaway, is a newcomer to the board.

Ms Dodd, who is General Manager and Principal Environmental Consultant at MRA Consulting, was elected after the more than 100 members cast their ballots for one (1) of three (3) candidates.

“WMRR congratulates Isobel on the National Vice Presidency and Michelle and Katherine on their appointment to the Board and welcomes the broad range of skills and experience they will bring to the table,” WMRR National President Geoffrey Webster said today. 

“I also want to pay particular thanks to outgoing Board members - National Vice President Mark Rawson, Nominated Directors Toby Terlet and Christine Wardle, all of whom have dedicated time and energy to the WMRR Board for the last four (4) years, which we greatly appreciate.  I would also like to thank Elected Board member Justin Bonsey for his enthusiasm, and contribution to the success of WMRR.

“WMRR is lucky to have such an engaged and knowledgeable membership from which to draw skills, talent and experience across the breadth and depth of the entire waste and resource recovery industry.

All new Board Directors will commence their terms at the forthcoming WMRR Annual General Meeting in Brisbane on Tuesday 25 June 2024.
