Waste Management Review caught up with Marc Churchin, COO of the Solid Waste Business to hear his insights and vision for the future after the recent restructure of the business lines around a national focus.
A brief excerpt of the article is below
'Chief Operating Officer Marc Churchin heads up the National Solid Waste division in Australia. Marc tells Waste Management Review that Veolia customers are demanding a higher level of efficiency, greater levels of service and more innovative approach to solving their waste challenges. He says the new structure aims to make it easier to deliver on all of these areas.
To that end, Marc's remit includes solid waste collection services, transfer stations and waste-to-energy (WtE) nationally.
With close to 1000 employees under the solid waste banner, this division is a key part of the business..
Marc will continue to work closely alongside his peers, Tony Roderick (formerly Vic/TAS Group General Manager) and Craig Balthes (formerly Group General Manager of QLD). Tony and Craig now hold the title of Chief Operating Officer for the Energy & Industrials, and Water divisions respectively.
"There's a need for ongoing collaboration between our business lines, so we'll continue to work closely together. For example, Tony is responsible for liquid and hazardous waste treatment, so there are obvious synergies there. Similarly, there are clients we look after where water and solid waste treatment solutions are part of a larger offering.
That's the beauty of having scale and deep expertise in specific areas" Marc says.
