Best Proactive is led by John Best, a dynamic leader with an enviable track record in developing businesses and organisations in sectors ranging from energy, enterprise and marine to waste, safety and retail. This has been delivered through commercial, membership, not for profit, associations and voluntary organisations. His experience encompassed senior roles with a commercial waste operator and an enterprise partnership before he conceived and founded the East of England Energy Group (EEEGR) and became its first chief executive. EEEGR quickly became the region's leading membership organisation and lobby group for the energy industry. John went on to become head of sustainable energy for James Fisher & Sons PLC. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, a member of the Institute of Leadership and Management and the Institute of Waste Management. He is also an ILM Level 5 business coach and an ambassador for the Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) Network.
