About Gareth: 

I am very proud to have founded Comply Direct and to have been the MD for the first 15 years of operation. I am now thoroughly enjoying my role as Chairman and am still very much involved in the business. My greatest pride has been seeing the growth of the team over the years and to see their collective potential come to fruition. As well as having a fantastic team, we have a brilliant set of customers. We constantly strive to surpass their expectations and for this, we are rewarded by their ongoing loyalty.

I think Comply Direct operate in a fantastic sector and extended producer responsibility (EPR) legislation is certainly here to stay for the foreseeable future. In addition to delivering the very best value we can for our customers, and as one of the largest compliance schemes in the UK, we have an important and increasing role to help re-shape existing regulations and mould the future UK EPR legislation, to ensure it is suitable for both the environment and obligated producer companies. With my experience of having been in the sector for close to 20 years, my main aim now is to use that knowledge I have gained to provide mentoring support to the team and to offer strategic guidance, ensuring that we continue to shape our range of services to meet our future customer needs.
