David Fitzsimons is Managing Director at Oakdene Hollins and an alumnus of London Business School. He is Director of the Brussels-based European Remanufacturing Council, which represents companies such as Volvo, IBM, Michelin, ENEL, Lexmark, Teleplan, and many specialist SME’s giving products a second life through the industrial process of remanufacturing. He represents the Council at Ellen MacArthur Foundation CE100 meetings, and in 2018 David’s work was commended with an award at the World Economic Forum in Davos.
David says "Recycling grew from 5% in the 1980's to 50% - let's see if we can do the same for remanufacturing. If we can…jobs and growth will be our measure of success."
