Wood Recyclers Association appoints new Executive Director
The Wood Recyclers Association (WRA) has recently appointed Julia Turner as its new Executive Director.
Julia joins the WRA from WRAP, the Waste and Resources Action Programme, where she has worked for 12 years in a variety of roles, more recently focusing on bringing in significant alternative funding streams and developing European partnerships in her roles as Senior Business Development Manager and Head of New Programmes. Previously she specialised in Energy from Waste and Wood as a Sector Advisor and Market Development Manager for the recycling industry.
Andy Hill, Chair of the WRA, said: “Julia brings a wealth of experience to the WRA from her time working at WRAP where she has facilitated the development of end markets for the wood sector, realised new funding opportunities and managed key stakeholder relationships.
“We are delighted she has joined us, especially at a time when the WRA is growing. Julia will play a key role in helping us to develop the Association going forward and in continuing our on-going work, including talking to the Environment Agency about its FPP guidance on behalf of our members.”
