Tyre Stewardship Australia (TSA) recently appointed Dale Gilson, former CEO of the Society of Automotive Engineers – Australasia, as CEO of the Federal and State Government supported, industry cooperative organisation.
Mr Gilson joins TSA on the third birthday of the organisation’s launch and will be responsible for guiding the next phase of TSA’s growth as it focuses on driving more sustainable and valuable end-of-life tyre outcomes.
“Having Dale’s experience on board will be of great value to TSA as we continue to achieve our objectives, particularly in developing job creating economically valuable local uses for tyre-derived raw material," said David Spear, TSA Independent Chair.
TSA reported that over 1200 tyre retailers have become accredited within the Tyre Product Stewardship Scheme and most of the nation’s major collectors and recyclers are also accredited. They said there is also significant interest in the scheme from local governments and fleets.
According to TSA, Gilson joins at an exciting time with both end–of-life tyre management reporting and market development funding building momentum.
He has also served as CEO of Motorcycling Australia, Speedway Australia and Four Wheel Drive Victoria. “I’m really looking forward to the role and the opportunity to support Tyre Stewardship Australia fulfil its obligations under the National Tyre Stewardship Scheme," Gilson said.
"It’s an exciting time to join TSA and I am grateful to the TSA Board for the opportunity to be part of this important initiative.”
