appointed executive director of Steel Recycling Institute
The Steel Market Development Institute (SMDI)
has announced that Steel Recycling Institute (SRI) president
William M. Heenan, Jr. is stepping down due to health reasons
after a distinguished career in the steel industry, including
20 years with SRI and 19 years with United States Steel Corporation.
SMDI also announced the appointment of Gregory L. Crawford as
executive director of the Steel Recycling Institute effective
December 1, 2010, succeeding Heenan.
As SRI’s vice president of operations, Crawford
worked with private-sector and local/federal government managers
on steel recycling issues. He has been active with the technical
and marketing considerations for sustainability for many years.
In 1990, he joined the original ASTM E50 Committee on Environmental
Assessment. In August 1995, he participated in the first Big
Sky, Montana meeting of the then-fledgling U.S. Green Building
Council. Crawford is also the executive director of the Cool
Metal Roofing Coalition and secretary for the California-based
Cool Roof Rating Council. He is immediate past chairman of the
Sustainable Buildings Industry Council.
