Award recipient for dedication to hazardous waste industry named

Barry Jordan, a national sales manager for Veolia ES Technical Solutions, L.L.C., has been named the 2010 recipient of the EI Digest Leadership Award. The award is presented annually to an individual who has shown outstanding contributions to the hazardous waste management industry. In addition to Jordan’s award, two Veolia ES Technical Solutions facilities were also recognized.

Cary Perket, president and CEO of The Envirobiz Group, noted that Jordan is the first non-executive to receive this industry award. “In the past, we’ve presented this award to company CEOs, presidents and/or founders,” said Perket. “But there is no denying that Barry is deeply committed to hazardous waste management and protecting the environment, which is the very essence of this award.”

Jordan has over 30 years of experience in environmental services, playing a variety of roles from policy development to operations to sales, but has spent most of his career involved in water pollution control and hazardous waste programs.

For the past ten years, Jordan has been involved with lighting and electronics recycling and is currently responsible for managing national sales for the Electronic Recycling Division of Veolia ES Technical Solutions.
