Bolingbrook, Ill.-based Wastebuilt Environmental Solutions has announced that CEO Greg Podell will transition from CEO to vice chairman of the board of directors, effective January 1, 2017. COO Dave McKeon will assume Podell’s operating positions after the transition.
"Since Wastebuilt's formation just over four years ago, we have built a national company providing parts, service and equipment for our customers across the waste and recycling industry. Partnering with great companies through acquisition, our initial integration period is largely behind us and our business strategies are delivering solid results," Podell said in a press release. "With our momentum building, I'm moving from an operational leadership position to a more strategic role as vice chairman of the board of directors."
Prior to joining Wastebuilt, McKeon held leadership roles at C&H Distributors, McMaster-Carr Supply, Beckley Cardy Group and USABlueBook.
"This has been an exciting year to join Wastebuilt," McKeon said in a press release. "Wastebuilt is becoming a national leader in parts, service and equipment for the waste and recycling industry with an unrivaled suite of products and services for our customers. It is the right time to shift our focus to operations so we can take full advantage of the new and growing opportunities open to a company with our national scale and broad expertise. We look forward to building on the momentum of the past four years under Greg's leadership."
