MBA Polymers, the world-leading multinational plastics recycling and technology company has added Nick Deeming to its Board, effective immediately. This is the second Board appointment in less than a month and comes as the sustainable polymers company strengthens its team for the next phase of growth.

Nick brings 30 years of business and legal experience and a strong commercial awareness working with boards, leading corporate transactions and specialising in the management of risk and the implementation of change.

Most recently, Nick was a member of the Executive Management Board and General Counsel for Transocean Ltd based in Geneva. Before that, and for four years, he was Chairman, Christie’s International Realty and Christie’s Insurance as well as being General Counsel, Christie’s International plc.

Prior to that, Nick was Chief Legal Officer for The Linde Group AG that acquired The BOC Group plc where Nick was a member of the Executive Management Board and General Counsel. Nick also worked at Sema Group and PPP Healthcare.

MBA Polymers Chief Executive Nigel Hunton commented, “We are delighted that Nick has joined us at this time and is part of strengthening the Board as MBA moves to the next stage of its evolution. As a General Counsel, Nick has been right at the heart of executive leadership with a remit including legal affairs, corporate transactions, risk control and compliance and has worked closely with Chairmen and CEOs to deliver strong leadership, international best practice and effective corporate governance.”

MBA Polymers announced in January that it had received further funding from its investors which will allow development of the business and move to the next stage of commercialising their processes and products.

Added Hunton, “We aim to build a company with strong governance as well as providing significant environmental benefits. That’s the mix which will ultimately provide us with the base from which we will grow in the future. Strengthening our non-executive team at this stage will assist us on that journey.”
