Andy Hill to hand over role as Chair of WRA

The UK organisation Wood Recyclers’ Association (WRA) yesterday (19 October) announced that its Chair, Andy Hill, will be stepping down from his role from March 2021.

Hill has led the WRA for eight years, and will hand his role over to the current Deputy Chair, Richard Coulson, at the trade association’s annual general meeting, which is due to take place in March.

He said: “I have thoroughly enjoyed my time with the WRA and am incredibly proud of all it has achieved over the past eight years. We have totally transformed from the small, trade association we were to one which can really pull its weight on behalf of its members.

“Of course I am proud that has happened under my chairmanship, but it is very much a team undertaking and without the collective efforts of the whole Board and others we would not be where we are today.”

While Hill looks forward to leading the WRA in the coming months, he expressed equal excitement at the prospect of ‘sitting in the wings and supporting wherever he can’ in his new role of Deputy Chair, where he will fill the role of future Chair Richard Coulson.
