Dhawal Shah has been appointed the new divisional president for non-ferrous at the BIR world recycling organisation. He succeeds David Chiao, who has headed non-ferrous for 19 years.
‘Dhawal Shah’s vision and experience will be a great asset to BIR and its leadership and I look forward to working with him to further develop BIR’s scope and international impact,’ says BIR president Tom Bird.
Shah is managing director of Metco Marketing India, one of India’s leading companies in non-ferrous scrap trade. He has been with the company for more than 20 years. A commerce graduate from Mumbai, Shah has always had a strong interest in recycling and over recent years he has dedicated much of his time to the growth and development of the metals recycling industry in India, says BIR.
Shah has been serving on the BIR non-ferrous board for 12 years, first as board member representing India and for the last six years as senior vice-president. He is also vice-president of the Metal Recycling Association of India and serves on the metals committee of the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry.
