    REPIC has announced today that Dr. Philip Morton will retire from the position of CEO at the end of the year. He will be succeeded by Mark Burrows-Smith, who joins the largest WEEE producer compliance scheme in October.

    Abs Bokhari, chairman of REPIC, comments: “Phil’s retirement represents the culmination of over 12 years of service and leadership to REPIC and the industry.  We want to thank Philip formally for his tremendous dedication, contribution and achievements for REPIC and for his pivotal input into shaping the WEEE compliance environment in the UK.

    “The board has had the time to conduct a full and proper process to manage this important transition and is confident that Mark’s wealth of experience and leadership qualities will see him ideally placed to sustain, build and capitalize on the significant progress made over the years.

    Morton, concludes: “REPIC is a special company with many dedicated people. I have been CEO for over 12 years and I believe this is the right time for a new leader to take over. In making this decision it has been important to me that the changeover is a smooth transition and continuity of service remains.”

    Having been REPIC CEO for 12 years (since the Compliance Scheme was launched in April 2004) Dr. Philip Morton is retiring from the position of CEO at the end of the year, but is being retained by REPIC for all non-UK activities for organisations such as the WEEE Forum and WEEE Europe.

    Mark Burrows –Smith will join REPIC as CEO on the 3rd of October 2016. Mark brings a wealth of leadership experience in the recycling and waste management sectors with roles including Chief Operating Officer of Viridor and Chief Executive Officer of Greenstar. His knowledge and standing in the industry, together with his network into both national and local government will ensure that REPIC continues to be a major, progressive force in the WEEE industry.
