The director of a North-east organics recycling firm has joined the board of Enterprise North East Trust (Enterprise).
Grant Keenan, Managing Director of Keenan Recycling, has been formally appointed as a non-executive director of Enterprise, which offers a range of services for new and growing businesses across the North-east, including the delivery of the Business Gateway services on behalf of Aberdeen City and Shire Councils.
Mr Keenan’s firm transforms food and garden waste into compost at a £5m facility near New Deer in Aberdeenshire. The award-winning site deals with tens of thousands of tonnes of food and green waste from local authorities all over Scotland and also offers a recycling service to businesses and food processors with green targets.
In addition to his business acumen, Mr Keenan’s main focus for Enterprise will be to provide advice and guidance to the board on all environmental issues affecting Scotland and the North-east.
He said: “I was very honoured to be invited to join the board of Enterprise North East Trust as the organisation is key to business growth throughout the area. Enterprise has offered support to our business as we have grown over the years and I hope this role will allow me to give something back to the business community. It’s great to support new businesses in the area to thrive and succeed and I’m very much looking forward to being a part of the Enterprise board.”
