The Solid Waste Association of North America (SWANA) has elected Thomas Reardon, vice president of the consulting firm Gershman, Brickner & Bratton (GBB), Fairfax, Va., vice director of its Waste-to-Energy (WTE) Technical Division.
SWANA's WTE Division’s purpose is to provide professionals with the information and contacts needed to improve plant operations, while encouraging innovation to enhance WTE's role as a viable option for solid waste management and an expanded source for clean, reliable and renewable power.
As a vice director, Reardon is a member of both WTE division's executive committee and steering committee. Reardon will advance into the position of division director (with approval of a majority of the Division Steering Committee) for a term of two years.
"In the past few years, I moderated WTE-related sessions and made presentations on the latest on WTE and conversion technologies at various events, including WASTECON and SWANA's senior executive seminar," says Reardon. "I am honored and excited at the prospect of working closely with the division director in advancing and expanding the division's program, and look forward to contribute toward achieving the division's goal."
Reardon has more than 27 years of experience in solid waste business management, project management, cost analysis, cost engineering and contract administration. Since joining GBB in 2009, he has been project manager for several confidential technology review projects, conducted and compiled detailed marketplace analysis reports for new product lines, assessed alternative waste-to-energy technologies, and assisted with their business development and planning efforts.
