The National Waste & Recycling Association (NWRA) announced it has hired Teddy Greissing and Jonathan Taylor, expanding its government affairs team. Greissing and Taylor will be assisting in the Washington, D.C., office while being trained to eventually help with chapter operations.
“Many of the issues facing our industry are at the state and local level. The addition of Teddy and Jonathan to our state government affairs team will only make NWRA a stronger voice for the waste and recycling industry,” said NWRA President and CEO Darrell Smith in a statement.
Greissing, a manager of government relations with NWRA, previously worked for Sanofi, a global pharmaceutical company, where he supported the work of the federal government affairs team. In addition, Greissing worked with a team to establish a best-in-class Civic Action Program, with a grassroots program designed to educate employees and the public on critical policy issues impacting the business. During his time working with the Civic Action team, they grew the contributions to the political action committee tenfold. Prior to his work with Sanofi, he worked on the John McCain presidential campaign.
Greissing enjoys spending his free time with his family and friends, cooking and attending concerts and a good movie. As a lifelong D.C.-area resident, he has been burdened with cheering for D.C. sports. He is a graduate of Georgetown University.
Taylor is also a manager of government relations for NWRA. He was the public policy intern at the Industrial Minerals Association of North America, and he worked to solve regulatory issues with Mercedes-Benz USA as a regulatory and recalls intern. He then decided to study abroad and intern his junior year with MP Connor Burns in The Parliament of the United Kingdom.
Taylor enjoys the company of his family, taking road trips to small towns in America and watching his favorite sports, football and NASCAR. He is a graduate of The Citadel, The Military College of South Carolina, with a degree in political science and pre-law concentration.
