Executive Manager Strategy and Policy
Tony is the Executive Manager of Strategy and Policy at Repak, having previously held the position of Programme Manager since he joined Repak in 2005.
A graduate of Economics and History from NUIG, Tony has significant experience working as a senior consultant in the areas of programme and change management in the service sector, both in Ireland and abroad, having previously worked in the Defence Forces.
At Repak, Tony’s primary responsibilities include monitoring and tracking of developments at EU level of the Circular Economy Package and the revised Waste Directives, and assessment of the potential impact on Repak and its operations, from both a strategic and policy perspective.
Tony also played a key role in the establishment of Repak ELT. This involved an extensive consultation and planning process with a wide range of stakeholders, leading to the eventual launch of the scheme under the new Waste Management (Tyres and Waste Tyres) Regulations in October 2017. As a startup scheme, Repak ELT’s performance exceeded expectations and is now very successful, managing waste tyres to end of life in an environmentally sound manner.
