Bill Caesar, former president of Waste Management’s recycling and organics operations, has joined WCA Waste Corporation as CEO.
Caesar, who left WM in September 2014, spent 13 years as a principal in the Atlanta office of McKinsey & Company, a leading global consulting and advisory firm.
“I am excited to join and lead the WCA team as CEO and to work closely with its management team and equity sponsor on executing a successful long-term growth strategy and building WCA into a leading non-hazardous waste services company,” Caesar said in a statement.
Caesar said WCA is poised to capitalize on its competitive advantage in the markets that it serves.
“I look forward to providing the strategic leadership and execution experience that will expand WCA’s market share, enhance its customer service capabilities, sustain the company’s safety first culture, and deliver strong operating and financial performance,” added Caesar.
Caesar holds a Bachelor of Arts from Colgate University, a Master’s Degree from Georgetown University and an MBA from the Fuqua School of Business at Duke University.
Paul Mitchener, WCA’s Chairman and a Managing Director with Macquarie Infrastructure and Real Assets, stated that the WCA Board undertook an extensive CEO search process targeting experienced candidates who think strategically, had a proven track record in executing strategic initiatives and operational improvements and understand the changing dynamics of the waste industry.
