The NSW Circular Economy Innovation Network has announced Lisa McLean as its inaugural CEO, a little over a year after holding its first stakeholder meeting.
The organisation, chaired by materials engineer Professor Veena Sahajwalla, is an initiative to link government, industry, research and the community for circular economy solutions. Sahajwalla said that its time in existence so far had been spent identifying capabilities and knowledge gaps in the state.
“Having Lisa come on board, with her high-level experience as a senior executive in several organisations engaged in circular economy, renewable and recyclables markets, will enable NSW Circular to begin to extend its operations and develop sustainable business models and processes at scale,” she added in a statement.
McLean is currently CEO of Open Cities Alliance, and founder and director of Carbonwise Company.
