Chris Ryan returns as President of VWMA

The Victorian Waste Management Association (VWMA) has elected Chris Ryan as its President, three years after his previous term.

The announcement was made recently at the VWMA’s Annual General Meeting. The VWMA is a division of the Victorian Transport Association (VTA), and represents the waste and recycling sectors of the industry in Victoria.

“I am honoured to have once again been elected to serve as President of the VWMA and look forward to working with the Executive and Executive Officer Andrew Tytherleigh to advance the interests of our industry and our members,” said Ryan, who previously served as President in 2013-14.

“On behalf of the Council I wish to thank our outgoing President Tim Watts, who worked tirelessly for two years in the role. Working in regional Victoria meant Tim travelled extensively over his Presidency, and we deeply appreciate his commitment and dedication.”

According to the VTA, Ryan is a long-serving member of the VWMA Executive and is Victorian State Manager for Kartaway, a role he has occupied for close to two years. Prior to that he was Victorian Operations Manager with Kartaway.

The VWMA AGM also re-elected Bruce Cunningham (Waste 2 Water), Adrien Scott (Solo Resource Recovery), Tim Isherwood (National Resource Recovery), Ken Dickens (Corio Waste Management), Graham Lenthal (Veolia), Paul Smith (KS Group) and James Whelan (Kartaway). They join current members, Matthew Whelan (Citywide) and Past President Tim Watts (Ellwaste).

Andrew Swann from Eastern Liquid (KS Group) was welcomed to the Executive as its newest member.
