Tasmanian Board positioning for change

Tasmanian waste management authority, Southern Waste Solutions, has announced a changing of the guard, with two new Board members – including a new Chair – beginning their terms today.

Dr Christine Mucha has replaced outgoing Chairperson, Ron Ward, who led the SWS Board for more than nine years, while Ms Elspeth Moroni has replaced outgoing Directors, John Brennan and Ernie Hacker.

Chair of the Copping Refuse Disposal Site Joint Authority, Sorell Mayor Kerry Vincent, said the Joint Authority was pleased to see the maturing business attracting such a strong and diverse range of applicants for the roles.

“SWS is now in its 20th year and we are in a fortunate position that so many worthy candidates saw fit to apply for these roles,” Mayor Vincent said.

“Both Dr Mucha and Ms Moroni are an excellent fit for the organisation and bring a wide range of new skills and experiences to the Board.”

“We are proud to now have a Board with a 50:50 gender split, and we are also thrilled that the new-look Board encompasses the diversity of skills and experiences as well as the commitment and enthusiasm to lead the organisation now and into the future.”

Dr Mucha, who has vast experience and a broad skill base across a wide range of industries, said she applied for the Director position as it offered an opportunity to participate in an industry that was going to experience change in the near future.

“The waste management industry is primed to experience real change with significant technological advances being realised in recycling, composting and energy generation,” Dr Mucha said.

“I appreciate the opportunity, as Chair of the SWS Board, to be a part of leading that change.

“I hope to gain a better understanding of the direction of waste management in Tasmania, while working with the Joint Authority, as well as the SWS Board and Management, to implement new technology and new opportunities for the organisation.”

The Authority has also appointed Dr Mucha and current SWS Director Mike Hunnibell to the Board of C Cell Pty Ltd to replace outgoing members Ron Ward and John Brennan.
