Jason brings three decades of industry experience to the e2e Executive Board and a history of many industry firsts. His company, FAB Recycling Ltd, was ahead of the curve as the first ever carbon neutral vehicle dismantler in 2010. FAB also designed and implemented the first reclaimed parts grading system and the first reclaimed parts procurement platform in the UK. His role at e2e will see Jason advising the Board on network strategy with a particular focus, unsurprisingly, on ESG and reclaimed parts. 

Jim Loughran, CEO at e2e, said: 

“Following his exit from SYNETIQ, Jason’s non-compete restrictions have prevented him from working in the industry for the last eighteen months. We are proud and delighted that he has chosen to join the e2e network as soon as permissible. Jason is known and respected by our members, who value his opinion and insight highly. The timing for the network is perfect as we prepare to launch our national reclaimed parts solution and as our members embrace our network wide ESG strategy. We look forward to drawing on Jason’s expertise and strategic input as we build competitive advantage with these initiatives, demonstrating the benefits that are unique to our collective network approach to servicing clients.”

 Commenting on his appointment, Jason said: 

“I’m delighted to be joining e2e at a time when the network is ready to disrupt the reclaimed parts supply chain with what I believe will be a groundbreaking proposition; and secondly, as the members unite behind a network wide ESG programme which has the combined potential to drive industry standards. Both initiatives pave the way for business growth.

At this time of market uncertainty, due to consolidation and pace of change, e2e’s members represent regional centres of excellence with a powerful, combined national footprint and in-depth local knowledge. They are uniquely placed to continue to take advantage of working collectively to offer service certainty and a first-class solution to the network’s clients. Sharing knowledge, resources and collaborating is critical to seizing the market opportunities that lay ahead, and I believe the key to huge upside potential for e2e’s network.

The next two years are going to see our industry facing further immense change. Salvage contracts will be won, and unfortunately lost, in many cases based on the reclaimed parts capability and approach to ESG of the companies involved. These are my areas of expertise after many years in the industry. I plan to use my knowledge, experience and strategic approach to full advantage as a new NED with e2e.”
