Michael Wheatley appointed as Operations Director| BY WishAgency
We are pleased to announce that Michael Wheatley has been appointed as our new Operations Director.
Michael originally joined Wastewise in May 2020 when he took on the role of Senior Operations & Compliance Manager. A major part of this role was ensuring compliance with health, safety and environmental legislation across our three operating sites.
Prior to this Michael has a long history in managerial operations roles with large UK companies, managing and developing multiple site locations, working to implement progressive safety improvement objectives whilst leading on contract negotiations.
In his new role, he will be responsible for the safe, efficient and profitable running of the sites across the Wastewise group, focusing on closer coordination in the sharing of capacity, facilities, staff and product distribution to maximise output. He will also be championing a more unified company staffing approach and extensive in-house training programmes to support safer working practice.
“I am delighted to take on this new role, “states Michael, “with plans to consolidate the already high standards set in Safety, Environmental, and Quality output that I’ve worked on since 2020. I have an ongoing programme of plant and capital investment that I am committed to and will support the board in its ambitious 5-year development strategy.”
“Michael is a hands-on manager that leads by example, engaging fully with employees at all levels to ensure that they are onboard with the objectives and direction of the business. He is a perfect fit for the task at hand, ” comments Bob Wilkes.
