Two directors of the former Caudwell Group, Steve Cuthbert
and Graham Ellerton (pictured), have partnered to run a UK recycling
company that specialises in mobiles.
The two are aiming to turn Birmingham Based Greencyc into an
‘internationally recognised market leader in environmental control’.
Greencyc Chairman Avtar Sandhu said: ‘I am
delighted that Steve has agreed to come out of semi-retirement and also brought
along Graham. They are a vital addition to the team at Greencyc and
together we will take the business to the next level.’
Ellerton, who was
previously marketing director at Caudwell Group’s distribution arm, 20:20
Logistics, said: ‘Recycling is a high priority in mobile comms and we have
joined Greencyc to build a brand that is synonymous with the very best in
disposal and re-use.’
‘The correct recycling of mobiles and other electrical
products is a major concern across Europe and
there is massive opportunity for companies with the right credentials to
perform a great service to all industries. ‘
Cuthbert was managing director of the Mobile Phone Repair
Company, the former Caudwell Group’s service centre. Both directors were key
figures in the Caudwell Group until it was sold by John Caudwell for £1.4bn.
