At the Association’s Annual General Meeting in Coventry on 14 March, members voted Plevin, who is Managing Director of the wood recycling company R Plevin & Sons, onto the board, where he will sit for a three-year period, after which he can stand for re-election.

R Plevin & Sons processes over 400,000 tonnes of non-hazardous waste wood every year at its facilities in Manchester, Nottinghamshire, Yorkshire and Lincolnshire to produce products for the panel board, biomass and animal bedding industries.

Commenting on his election, Plevin said: “I’m really pleased to have been elected to the board. Plevin have been members of the WRA for a long time and when the opportunity arose to put myself forward I jumped at the chance.

“I think the challenges that are currently facing the wood recycling industry have never been greater and I am really looking forward to becoming an active board member.”

Andy Hill, Chair of the WRA, said: “We’re really pleased to have Jamie on the board. He will bring a wealth of sector experience and knowledge to the table which will be invaluable in helping us to continue to grow as an association.”

Plevin replaces David Laing, another wood recycler, who retired from his position last year to spend more time with his family, while his company, DJ Laing Recycling Solutions, remains a member of the WRA.
