Keep America Beautiful adds board members

Keep America Beautiful, Inc. (KAB) has appointed Carey Hamilton, executive director of Indiana Recycling Coalition, and Gregory L. Crawford, executive director of the Steel Recycling Institute (SRI), to KAB’s national board of directors.

Hamilton, who will represent the interests of KAB’s State Recycling Organization partners, has served as IRC’s executive director since 2008, following a career in environmental consulting and advocacy. She has previously served as a program manager for the Indiana Department of Environmental Management, where she specialized in air quality issues. Under Governor Frank O’Bannon, Hamilton led the Indiana Greening the Government Program in 1999 and 2000, overseeing environmental practices for 700 state offices.

Prior to his appointment to executive director at SRI, Crawford served as the organization’s vice president of operations. 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 United States 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. In addition, he is on the board of the Athena Institute and is a member of the California Association of Building Energy Consultants. He is immediate past chairman of the Sustainable Buildings Industry Council. Crawford holds a Bachelors of Science degree in engineering from the United States Military Academy in West Point, New York, and an MBA from the University of Utah.
