Executive Director - Major Appliance Recycling Roundtable (MARR)
Location: Victoria or Vancouver, BC
The Major Appliance Recycling Roundtable (MARR) is a not-for-profit stewardship agency created to implement and operate a stewardship plan for end-of-life (EOL) major household appliances in the province of British Columbia (BC) on behalf of the major appliance manufacturers, brand owners, importers and first sellers in BC, and who are obligated under the BC Recycling Regulation. The MARR stewardship plan received the approval of BC's Ministry of Environment on June 29, 2012, and has been operating since the Fall of 2013. Today it is the only approved stewardship plan for major appliances in the province.
MARR is working towards enhancing the performance and transparency of the existing market-based system of collecting and recycling major household appliances in BC. Updated stewardship plans are submitted to the Ministry of Environment approximately every five years and it is expected that MARR’s next plan will put a finer point on the responsibilities and costs involved in meeting its obligations.
MARR seeks an Executive Director who will work closely with stakeholders to lead all aspects of MARR’s program to ensure that the program fulfills its obligations under the BC Recycling Regulation. Reporting to the Board of Directors, this individual will be comfortable with both the strategic and the tactical as they work to scale the organization thoughtfully over time.
The ideal candidate brings leadership experience from within an industry in which logistics, multiple locations, transportation and extensive stakeholder relations is in evidence. Regardless of where this experience has been gained, this individual is analytical and future-oriented, a consummate relationships builder, and is excited by the prospect of bettering British Columbia’s environment through leading edge, responsible product stewardship while enabling industry to meet their regulated obligations in a cost-effective manner.
The nature of the role requires considerable time out of the office in terms of working with the multitude of stakeholders. The ideal candidate, given proximity to stakeholders, is likely to be based in Vancouver or Victoria.
