Advanced Disposal’s Appleby to Retire; Burke Named CEO

Charlie Appleby will retire July 1 as CEO of ADS Waste Holdings Inc., which does business as Advanced Disposal Services Inc.

The Ponte Vedra, Fla.-based ADS said in a news release that it selected President Richard Burke to replace Appleby as CEO. Appleby will stay on the board of directors following his retirement.

"Richard is a phenomenal leader,” Appleby said. “He brings integrity, passion, business sense and a willingness to lead from the front. Richard has the broad business experience, in depth industry knowledge, and has clearly demonstrated the requisite executive skills and temperament to lead Advanced Disposal successfully into the future."

Also, Walter Hall, the chief operating officer of the company, is leaving Advanced to pursue other opportunities. Burke also will serve as chief operating officer, effective immediately, until he assumes the position of CEO or until ADS names a replacement.

"We thank Wally for all he has accomplished for the company and wish him well in the future,” Appleby said. “Wally has been an instrumental part of building the Advanced Disposal team and the successes we have achieved since inception of our company. He will always be an important part of our history."
