Marcus Burley

Thriving Sheffield confidential waste, shredding and recycling experts Russell Richardson have hired a new operations and depot manager.

Marcus Burley now oversees the running of the Tinsley company’s nationwide collection convoy, 50,000 sq. ft. warehouse and ensures the super shredder keeps running efficiently, in turn destroying up to seven tonnes of material an hour.

The 42-year-old from Intake, Sheffield, was previously a warehouse and production manager at Prospec Ltd based in Rotherham. There he ran a team which included warehouse staff, fabricators and drivers. Marcus’ role was to ensure that all the material was fabricated correctly, parts were picked accurately, and ensuring that all material was delivered on time for the installation team. 

“Lyndsay Stewart is the reason for my arrival at Russell Richardson. In the 16 years of knowing Lyndsay she has always spoken highly of the company and Jonathan Richardson. After talking things through, I realised that it was going to be a big challenge (which I was looking for). But the right people were already here. The past month has proven that Lyndsay was right.” 

Russell Richardson has recently relocated all operations to the Tinsley facility. The relocation has allowed the company to combine the shredding, archiving and recycling divisions of the company within the high security site.

Commented Russell Richardson’s MD Jonathan Richardson: “Marcus’ skills have been sharpened with a multi-national company and make him a foremost benefit to the team. He has numerous years of knowledge and has managed large teams. We’re already seeing what Marcus can bring to the team here and wish him a long and happy career at Russell Richardson.”
