Lancaster County, Pa. – The Lancaster County Solid Waste Management Authority (LCSWMA) announces the promotion of Daniel Youngs, the organization’s current Chief Financial Officer, to Chief Executive Officer, effective September 30, 2024. Youngs will replace Robert Zorbaugh who has served as LCSWMA’s CEO for five years. Zorbaugh plans to retire at the end of 2024 after a 35-year career with the organization.
“Dan’s clear vision for LCSWMA’s future will serve the organization well as we meet and exceed the solid waste management needs of a growing region,” said George Rettew, LCSWMA’s Board Chair. “As an internal leader who is already familiar with the solid waste industry, our employees, and the organization’s host communities, he is well-positioned to quickly transition into his new role and make an immediate impact as the next Chief Executive Officer of LCSWMA.”
Youngs joined LCSWMA in 2019 as CFO overseeing the fiscal strategy, accounting, reporting, treasury, and risk management as well as LCSWMA’s technology infrastructure. In addition, he oversees the organization’s human resources and employee relations strategy and programming. Prior to LCSWMA, he served as Controller for White Oak Mills, Inc., and held financial and operations positions in other manufacturing and industrious companies.
Youngs earned a B.S. in Accounting with a second major in Business Administration from Lebanon Valley College and an MBA from the same college.
