Jangro appoints Joanne Gilliard as new CEO
Yes, the cleaning and janitorial industry’s hottest rumour is true! At Jangro’s General Meeting earlier this month, we announced that Joanne Gilliard has been appointed as our new CEO.
Plastic waste has never been in the headlines more since being highlighted on the BBC’s Blue Planet 2 and PM Theresa May’s subsequent unveiling of her government’s 25-year environmental plan. The plan focussed heavily on plastic waste, which she called “one of the great environmental scourges of our time”.
