The U.K.-based plastics recycling firm ECO Plastics has appointed Chris Brown as its new CEO. He replaces Jonathan Short, ECO Plastics’ former managing director, who has been named deputy chairman. 
The board of directors for ECO Plastics also appointed Bill Reeves chairman and Darren Marr CFO.
Under the new structure, Brown, who has more than 18 years of industry experience, will assume responsibility for ECO Plastics’ day-to-day operations and management, while Short, along with Reeves, will focus on innovation and the business’ medium- and long-term strategy. 
“We are delighted to name Chris as our new CEO. He has a wealth of experience, is well-respected throughout the FMCG (fast moving consumer goods) industry and will slot straight in,” says Short. “More than anything, today’s announcement is demonstration of the huge progress that ECO Plastics has made since we reopened in 2010. These appointments leave us ideally positioned as we look to take our business into its next chapter with a board that has huge industry experience and expertise.”
