Colin Robertson CBE Appointed NWH Chairman

The NWH Group, one of the UK’s leading recycling businesses, has appointed Colin Robertson CBE as Chairman.

Colin who will take up the position in April 2022, will work alongside Mark Williams, NWH’s Chief Executive, to deliver the next phase of growth for the business.

Mark Williams, Chief Executive of The NWH Group, said:

“I have been fortunate to know Colin for a number of years and I am delighted that he has agreed to become the Chair of NWH. During the past year, the organisation has embarked on a bold new strategy outlining our ambitions to double the size of the business, so with Colin’s strategic leadership skills and vast knowledge, I’ve no doubt of our future success.”

Colin Robertson, Chairman, added:

“As NWH moves into a transformational phase of growth, I’m hugely excited to take on the position of Chair. I’m looking forward to developing a formidable partnership with Mark and the Board as we move into this new chapter.”

An industry leader with more than 38 years of international manufacturing experience, Colin was previously Chief Executive of Britain’s largest bus and coach manufacturer, Alexander Dennis Limited, for 13 years. He is also Founder of Robertson Campbell Investments.

In his role at Alexander Dennis, Colin led the transformation from a predominantly UK-focused business to an international player in its sector, employing 2600 team members, with annual revenue of more than £600m.

Colin is Chairman of Entrepreneurial Scotland and in May 2019, he received a CBE for his services to exports, and to the bus and coach manufacturing sector.

Last month, NWH announced it had secured a £19m funding deal from The Royal Bank of Scotland to support its expansion plans including the roll out of services in new regions, as well as creating new jobs in Scotland and north-east England. Furthermore, £4.4m has already been committed to the installation of new state-of-the-art technology at the company’s Mayfield site, which will be used to vastly increase recycling capabilities for inert construction and demolition materials.
