Biffa boss quits af­ter 8 years

Daily Mail - - City & Finance -

BIFFA boss Ian Wake­lin is to step down af­ter nearly eight years lead­ing the waste man­age­ment firm.

The chief ex­ec­u­tive will be re­placed by chief fi­nan­cial of­fi­cer Michael Topham, who has been in the role since 2013.

But Wake­lin will re­main as chief ex­ec­u­tive un­til a suc­ces­sor has been ap­pointed for Topham.

De­tails of the change came as Biffa re­ported a 32.2pc rise in profits to £59.6m for the year to March 30. Rev­enue rose 8.8pc to £977.7m.

Ken Lever, chair­man of Biffa, said Wake­lin can feel ‘ex­tremely proud of what he has achieved’.
