These facilities use state-of-the-art technologies to reduce the amount of household waste going to landfill and generate energy for the local community. He will also oversee the operations of Waterbeach Waste Management Park near Cambridge, which provides a range of waste services including materials recycling, composting and mechanical biological treatment.
Hevia joined Amey 10 years ago, from parent company Ferrovial. He has been at the centre of developing the environmental and waste side of Amey during his career here and brings a strong track record in delivery and technical capability that will support the development and effective management of this part of the business.
Commenting on the appointment, Amey’s Chief Executive Andy Milner said: “Paco has been instrumental in developing our waste treatment operations at Amey. He has a deep understanding of how our facilities operate and will be driving our business plans forward as he takes the role of Managing Director.”
Hevia said: “This is an exciting time for our waste treatment operations as local authorities increasingly are looking to limit landfill and address the UK’s energy gap. I look forward to working with senior management team and fellow Amey Executives to run our existing facilities and explore future opportunities in this sector.”
