Professor John Donaldson recently retired as President of WAMITAB having served for over 21 years, as Vice President and latterly as President.
Professor Donaldson was appointed Academic Vice President (VP) of WAMITAB in 1997; serving alongside John Fergusson (VP) and the President, Lord Gregson, and subsequently Lord Lewis “Jack”, with whom he shared significant academic interest. In 2015, Professor Donaldson was appointed President of WAMITAB.
John’s contribution to WAMITAB cannot be underestimated, it would be fair to say that without John’s consistent level-headed support and direction WAMITAB would not be in the strong position it is today.
John’s achievements as an academic in the field of chemistry and waste management have been outstanding. His firmly held belief that the industry needs an independent skills body has been reflected through many years of service and evidenced by the continuity of WAMITAB.
Chris James, CEO at WAMITAB said, “We have been very fortunate to have John’s support and insight to help to guide WAMITAB’s development. Sadly, WAMITAB does not have the powers to confer fellowships, companionships or knighthoods and instead we simply and humbly thank John for 21 years of service and express the hope that he keeps in touch.”
