"Over the past 11 years he has taken on progressively larger roles at Clean Harbors, demonstrating strong leadership at every level. Prior to Clean Harbors, Jerry served for 16 years at Safety-Kleen, where he developed a command of the company's business, operations and market opportunities. Given his history with both organizations, Jerry brings the right combination of skills to help with the successful completion of the integration of Safety-Kleen and to keep the business on its current growth trajectory."
