Industry Veterans Dietrichs Form Waste Acquisition Firm

Long-time solid waste industry veterans G.W. “Bill” and William M. “Billy” Dietrich have joined with Maxim Partners LLC to form Bobcat Disposal Companies to acquire and integrate solid waste companies.

Bill and Billy will lead Bobcat as chairman/CEO and president, respectively, based in Sarasota, Fla., according to a news release. The firm aims to buy and integrate residential, commercial and industrial solid waste companies in targeted, disposal-neutral secondary markets across the United States.

Bill Dietrich most recently served as executive chairman of a large, unidentified waste company for six years. Previously he was CEO of Onyx North America/Superior Services from 1994 through 2004, where he completed more than 150 acquisitions with revenues growing from $63 million to more than $1 billion.

Billy Dietrich has spent more than 20 years in the solid waste industry, most recently as chief operating officer of the family's Florida-based construction & demolition (C&D) collection business as well as providing business development services.  

Maxim Partners, a financial sponsor specializing in environmental services based in Hinsdale, Ill., in the Chicago area, will supply capital.

Bill Dietrich said, "During my 25+ years in the waste services industry, I have been blessed with many successes and the good fortune to have met and worked with so many wonderful people.  I believe the time is right to begin a new journey and build another people-oriented, superior company.”
