Sam was a founding Director of Resource Futures in 2006 and has been instrumental in the development and success of the business since that time. He took over as CEO in April 2016 and leads the development of the business offering to commercial sector clients and their value chain to collaborate together in order to implement sustainable circular business models.
Sam's career in waste started as a waste composition site manager. This hands on and sometimes fragrant initiation into waste and secondary resources installed his ethos that sustainable resource efficiency practices have to be based on robust data, insightful analysis and supported by innovative engagement, education and communications.
He was voted number 20 in the Resource magazine Hot100 in 2016 reflecting his growing profile in the sector over the past few years. He has worked with national, regional and local Government across the UK, private sector companies as well as numerous third sector organisations putting the theory of sustainable resource efficiency and the circular economy in to practice. His expertise lies in strategic partnership development and research design in order to achieve improvements in how clients engage with their supply chain and customers, deliver services and manage resources.
