Gover is currently operations director at WRAP, and will replace Liz Goodwin who is stepping down after nine years at the helm of WRAP.
The incoming chief executive joined WRAP in 2007 and has been instrumental in helping with the organisation’s transition into a leading charity at the forefront of the circular economy.
He has worked in the environment sector for over 25 years, in the UK and abroad.
During this time, he has held a wide range of roles including managing a water engineering company, running an outsourced waste management operation and setting up an office in China.
Prior to joining WRAP, he was the commercial director of a start-up renewable energy company.
“I’m absolutely delighted to be chosen to lead WRAP, an organisation with a history of success and a bright future,” said Gover. “To create a world where resources are used sustainably requires action, and that is where WRAP’s focus will continue to be.”
Goodwin added: “I’m delighted that Marcus will be the next CEO of WRAP. We have worked together for many years and I know he is passionate about the issues WRAP works on as well as caring deeply about WRAP and its staff. I am confident he will lead WRAP through the next stage of its development and on to further success.”
