Important Message

Dear WEC Stakeholder,

This message is to inform you that our fantastic General Manager, Ruth Seabright, is relocating with her family to sunny Nelson and is regretfully stepping down from her position with the Waikato Environment Centre at the end of July 2016.

Ruth joined the Waikato Environment Centre in April 2014, and in that time she has had a tremendous impact on the organisation. Under Ruth’s leadership, the organisation relocated to a more purposeful and higher-profile location, established our food rescue service Kaivolution which recently celebrated the rescue of over 100 tonne of edible food from going to landfill, she developed our E-cycle programme as a sustainable consumer choice for ethical recycling of electronic goods, as well as the establishment of a thriving enviro shop offering alternative choices for consumers at our location at Five Cross Roads, amongst a number of other initiatives. She has developed an amazing team of 12 staff and 65 volunteers that are well positioned to continue her great work.

Ruth’s efforts have had an significant impact not only on the organisation but also on our community, helping WEC work towards achieving its vision of Healthy Environments Supported by Thriving Communities.

Ruth will be sorely missed at WEC and we wish her and her family the very best in their new location.

The Trust board has commenced a recruitment process to appoint a new General Manager and we will keep you informed of our progress.

Best regards,

Pamela Storey

Board Chair

Waikato Environment Centre
