In January Tyre Stewardship Australia welcomed Ms. Lina Goodman as the organisation's new CEO. She has more than 20 years’ experience in resource recovery and environmental innovation, bringing together projects and partners to deliver commercial and environmental improvements. Lina comes to TSA with vast industry experience in senior management roles across logistics and manufacturing, packaging and recycling organisations that includes the TIC Group, CSR Limited and VISY Industries.
Lina holds both a Bachelor of Business and a Master’s in Business (Marketing) and also currently sits on the Advanced Manufacturing Board.
Every aspect of TSA’s operations has seen increased activity, resulting in greater industry buy-in and delivery on the exciting potential for end uses of tyre derived material. The Scheme now has over 1,500 accredited participants, represents over 80% of the EOLTs collected nationwide, and has committed over $4 million to market development opportunities. Lina joins TSA at a pivotal time, following the ACCC reauthorisation of the Tyre Stewardship Scheme, in 2018, for a further six years.
In welcoming Ms. Goodman's appointment TSA Chairman, David Spear, commented; “Lina’s breadth of experience will assist us in the next phase of TSA, securing the foundations for growth as we progress towards our vision of finding sustainable solutions for the management of end-of-life tyres.”
As she accepted the challenge of her new role Lina remarked; “I am excited by the opportunity to continue the efforts that are progressing this important initiative. The Product Stewardship space is vital in the circular economy revolution, and TSA will play its part.”
