Alan Sutcliffe is the CEO of Solo Plastic. A lifelong Engineer, Alan has been pulling things apart since he was a kid to find out how they work. He continues to be as curious as ever and still runs towards fires! A self-confessed learnaholic, he holds an MBA (with Distinction and a specialisation in Operations and Management) and a Masters of Philosophy, focusing on Leadership and Sustainability. He is proud to be a fellow of the IET and a Chartered Engineer and is also a Chartered Director and a Member of the IoD.

Alan has over twenty years’ of experience in Leadership, Management, Operations and Manufacturing across multiple industries including AgriTech, Dairy, Food, Pharmaceutical, Infrastructure and Utilities. People and Planet are his fundamental focus and he is determined to prove that a traditional manufacturing SME can thrive by focusing on these values rather than just on the bottom line.
