AD trade association to recruit new chair
The Anaerobic Digestion & Bioresources Association (ADBA) has announced it has begun the process of recruiting a chair to lead it into its second decade.
A new position in the association, replacing the chief executive position, the chair will be responsible for leading the association’s strategy, developing its business plan, representing the association at the highest levels and engaging with its members.
Current chief executive Charlotte Morton will continue to be involved on the association’s advisory board.
According to the press release, the candidate is expected to be a high-profile figure with significant experience in the anaerobic digestion (AD) industry.
“As ADBA prepares to celebrate ten successful years of supporting the growth of the UK’s AD industry and helping to decarbonise the UK economy, the aim is for the new Chair to be in place to take forward ADBA’s exciting vision for its second decade, which will see the industry build on its success to date and grow to meet its exceptional potential,” said Charlotte Morton, ADBA chief executive.
“With so much uncertainty as a result of Brexit and a changing political landscape, it’s vital that ADBA stays one step ahead of the game to ensure that we put the AD industry in the best possible position to meet its full potential over the coming years. With the support of ADBA’s Advisory Board, the new Chair will help take the association and the industry to a new level, and will take forward our focus on benchmarking excellence, which started last year with the launch of the AD Certification Scheme.
“When the new Chair is in place, whilst I will continue to oversee the delivery of the services ADBA provides to its members as Chief Executive of We Are Orchard, ADBA will have a new leader to take this exciting industry to the next level.”
Recruitment for the role is set to begin in the beginning of 2019.
