The Bureau of International Recycling (BIR), Brussels, has named Alexandre Delacoux its new director general, effective Sept. 1, 2013. He will succeed Francis Veys, who is retiring from the BIR while continuing to serve the association in an advisory capacity.

Delacoux joined the BIR in October 2012 as general manager, gradually taking over more responsibilities.

As director general, Delacoux will manage BIR’s day-to-day operations. He will oversee BIR’s staff and the mission of ten BIR Ambassadors while also managing coordination between the programs of the BIR commodity divisions and committees that seek to achieve a common strategy worldwide.

Delacoux has worked in the corporate sector, having worked for close to 10 years for Du Pont de Nemours, a business-to-business company in the chemical industry.
