Garry Johnson

Garry is joint Chairman and co-owner of UKWSL. He has worked in the waste industry since 1995, starting out as a field sales executive with Biffa, working up to National Account Manager and stayed for 10 years. This was followed by a move to Cleanaway as National Account Manager for two and a half years. Desire to move away from traditional large companies and get experience in waste brokerage, saw him move to Greenstar for two years.

Having gained a deep understanding and knowledge of the waste management industry, Garry felt it was time to set up his own company and together with Chris Giscombe they decided to form UKWSL.

Looking back prior to the formation of UKWSL in 2003, Garry sees an industry that was lacking a clear understanding of customer requirements. “Our belief in the broker solution convinced us that we could meet and exceed all customer and supply chain expectations by adapting the model and this remains true and to the heart of our business to this very day.”
