New roles at the top for leading London Irish waste management firm

THE London Irish firm Powerday has announced changes to its leadership team.

The family-owned waste management and recycling business has announced that its Chief Financial Officer, Liam Kearney, has been promoted to Joint Managing Director, alongside Managing Director, Jim Craig.

In his new role Mr Kearney, who hails from Killarney, Co. Kerry, will continue to provide strategic financial counsel, as well as taking on responsibility for sales and marketing, transport, human resources and IT.

After a successful decade as part of the senior management team, which has seen the company go through a period of sustained growth, Mr Craig will continue as Joint Managing Director as he moves towards retirement, with responsibility for operations, compliance, SHEQ, construction and RDF/SRF outlets.

Powerday's joint Managing Director Jim Craig is heading towards retiring

This appointment comes as the company looks to achieve further growth in key markets and follows the recent news that it acquired two new waste transfer stations covering a total of 114,792 sq ft - significantly expanding its coverage of London and the home counties.

Earlier this year, it also announced that Anthony Davitt and Bradley Collins had been promoted to Sales Director and Head of Sales, respectively.

Edward Crossan, Vice Chairman of Powerday, said: “Our people are at the heart of what we do at Powerday, and Jim has been a real asset to the company for the past decade.

"As he nears a well-deserved retirement after a 50-year career in construction, we are delighted that Liam has stepped up to become Joint Managing Director.”

He added: “I look forward to working with them both and have no doubt that together they will help us achieve our strategic objectives, successfully navigate the ‘new normal’ and deliver another period of sustained success for the business.”
