December 9, 2021: Lithium battery recycling firm Li-Cycle has appointed Debbie Simpson as chief financial officer effective February 1 and Nahla Azmy as senior vice president for investor relations and financial communications, who has started in November.

Simpson will take over from retiring CFO Bruce Macinnis and will work together during the transition process.

Simpson has left Maple Leaf Foods, where she held a similar position and helped to see the company through a shift towards a higher-value sustainable protein business by securing more than $2 billion in funding.

Before that, she was CTO of Vincor International, a global producer and distributor of wines.

On November 15, Nahla Azmy was appointed SVP in investor relations. A former equity analyst, Azmy has left chemicals firm Ecovyst to join Li-Cycle, after developing and implementing an investor relations programme for the company. Azmy also has previous experience in utilities and power research companies.

Both will report to Li-Cycle CEO Ajay Kochhar.

In August Li-Cycle, which is based in Canada, appointed Li Dawei as vice-president of its Asian business.
