SPEEDY Hire has appointed ESG director Amelia Woodley and Health, Safety, Security, Environment, and Quality (HSSEQ) director Andy Johnson to its executive board.

The firm said the moves mark its continued commitment to ensuring it places ESG at the heart of its strategy.

Amelia Woodley brings almost 20 years of experience to the board, having worked with Speedy Hire for two years and having previously held senior roles at South Western Railway, Network Rail and BAE systems. Her experience has been tipped to help Speedy continue to drive down carbon emissions and enhance social value across the business and its wider supply chain.

Amelia Woodley said, “I am delighted to become the board’s first ESG director. Since joining Speedy the support and enthusiasm for ESG has been perceptible throughout the whole organisation: within leadership, at the board level, in the way everyone within the company embraces the ESG agenda. This development echoes Speedy’s drive to do better and be better and will help us to continue to reach our goals.”

Andy Johnson brings over 20 years of experience in HSSEQ to the board, following his long-standing history with Speedy and previous senior positions in oil and gas in the Middle East. Andy also has experience in warehousing, logistics and the utilities and construction sectors. As an associate of the Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment (IEMA) and a chartered member of the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH), Speedy said his expertise strengthens the company’s commitment to innovation in safety and health.
