Damian is our head of projects, with several roles. He helps support current business strategies, as well as developing new opportunities and making new business relationships.
Damian’s background is large and diverse. For the last 16 years he has been running his own businesses, ranging from a beach café, restaurant, dive centre, IT company, computer importer and retailer in the South West, plus work in recycling companies. One of the most notable companies was A1 Compliance, one of the original WEEE producer compliance schemes. It has recently merged with Ecosurety.
Having been in the recycling industry for the last 16 years, both with physical recycling of WEEE, plastics, cardboard and paper, as well as legal compliance, Damian has a wide skillset and knowledge base in the industry.
Outside of work, Damian served for 18 years as a volunteer coastguard rescue officer in Falmouth, Cornwall; he also enjoys martial arts, and competes regularly. And he enjoys playing golf despite being possibly the world’s worst ever player! Passionate about the marine environment, Damian is also an amateur marine conservationist and loves diving and surfing.
