The company announced the appointment of Edward May as executive vice president and chief operations officer.

Strategic Materials Inc., North America’s largest glass recycler, announced the appointment of Edward May as executive vice president and chief operations officer for the company. The announcement comes shortly after Mike Hajost joined the company as chief financial officer in January.

According to the company, May is an accomplished supply chain leader with domestic and international experience, serving in most recent roles as vice president for Fortune 500 Danaher Corporation and as chief supply chain officer with privately held wastewater treatment leader Evoqua Water Technologies.

“As we continue our commitment to excellence, Edward’s experience in developing complex supply chains and track record for reducing capital is the right fit for our organization to not only better support our growth goals, but also continuously improve our current operations in meeting customer demand,” said Strategic Materials President and Chief Executive Officer Denis Suggs in a statement.

May holds a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Loyola University and a master’s degree in business administration from DePaul University. He also is a member of the Institute for Supply Management and American Production and Inventory Control Society.
