LACEY WEBB

Senior Consultant: Risk, Regulation & Strategy, Mandalay Technologies

Lacey Webb is a former CFO and industry experienced Waste Strategist & Consultant, specialising in Risk, Regulation and Governance. An accomplished leader focusing on finance, process improvement and business transformation, she is CPA qualified and a specialist within entrepreneurial groups, Australian LGA recycling operations, and commercial waste management facilities.  Lacey is passionate about driving organisations to improve profitability and efficiency and her broad ranging financial, technical and operational experience allows her to lead change management across all levels of industry with ease.  

In 2017, together with Mandalay Technologies, Lacey identified a lack of consultancy available to waste management organisations throughout Australia that targets front end operations and financial compliance.  During this period she has aided Council and commercial facilities to identify opportunities in their governance practices, in operational and regulatory process and in financial process including identification of large scale institutional fraud.  

Having spent the past 6 months heavily embedded in waste levy implementations across the state of Queensland, she looks forward to the opportunities that this affords our industry, to redefine industry standards and best practice methodologies
