REPUBLIC TEAM –[/av_textblock] [av_textblock size='16' font_color='' color='' av-medium-font-size='' av-small-font-size='' av-mini-font-size='' admin_preview_bg=''] To deliver on our strategy of Growth through Differentiation, we must attract and retain the best people. Over the years, we’ve built a high-caliber leadership team, leveraging composite strength – the best talent from inside and outside the industry – and deliberately creating development plans for our people. We have never had a stronger, more aligned team leading our Company.
We have the best team in the industry and that’s evident in our business results. We posted a strong first quarter, our stock price is at an all-time high, and we have a huge opportunity to change the way America recycles. There’s no better time than now to position ourselves for accelerated growth. With this, I’m pleased to appoint Jon Vander Ark as President of Republic Services. As President, Jon is responsible for the Company’s ongoing transformation and continued growth. In addition to operations, he will oversee marketing, sales and business development. Jon will continue reporting to me.
Jon joined the Company in January 2013 as EVP, Chief Marketing Officer, and has since served as EVP, Operations, and most recently, Chief Operating Officer. During his tenure, he led operations for the western half of the country, the eastern half of the country, and then operations companywide. He’s had great successes in his time here, including advancing the Republic Services brand, elevating the Company's customer-centric service approach and putting greater rigor around safety, fleet readiness, labor effectiveness and route optimization. Prior to Republic, Jon served as a partner at McKinsey & Company’s Detroit office, managing clients across a variety of industries, including transportation, logistics, manufacturing and consumer products. He holds a bachelor’s degree from Calvin College and a Juris Doctorate from Harvard Law School.
To fill the position vacated by Jon, Tim Stuart has been appointed Chief Operating Officer. As COO, Tim is responsible for continuing to operationalize the Company's strategy and execute our business plan across field operations. In addition to leading the general management organization, he will have functional responsibility for safety, operations effectiveness, engineering, environmental compliance and fleet management.
With nearly 25 years in the industry, Tim has deep experience across of all aspects of business operations. He joined Republic Services in 2006 as Director of Operations and has since held roles of increasing responsibility, including Area President; Vice President, Customer Experience; Region Vice President; Region President; and most recently EVP, Operations. During his tenure, Tim pioneered the Company’s customer experience efforts, implementing service commitment methodologies and metrics, along with our use of Net Promoter Score as a key customer insight tool. Tim holds a bachelor’s degree in business administration from the University of Alabama and an MBA from Florida Gulf Coast University.
Jon and Tim work effectively together and have delivered sustainable results for our customers and shareholders. They have built strong teams and remain focused on making Republic a place where the best people come to work.
I’m looking forward to working closely with them in their new roles as we continue to strengthen The Republic Way and accelerate the Company’s growth over the coming years.
Please join me in congratulating Jon and Tim on their new roles and wishing them continued success at Republic Services.
