Waste Harmonics

STAMFORD, Conn. and ROCHESTER, N.Y. – May 3, 2024 – Keter Environmental Services and Waste Harmonics, which merged in 2023 to create a leading diversified managed waste service provider (the “Company”), today announced the appointment of Robert “Bob” Boucher as the combined company’s Chief Executive Officer. Waste Harmonics Founder, Michael Hess, and Keter Founder, Steven Schlussel, will continue their involvement with the Company in their roles on the Board and will work closely with Boucher to ensure a smooth transition.

“Bob is a veteran of our industry, and we are pleased to welcome a CEO of his caliber at an exciting time for the combined company,” said Hess. “His significant experience leading teams, transformations, integrations, and business development for global waste management, environmental services, and energy companies makes him an excellent fit to take us to the next level. Steve and I look forward to working with Bob in our role on the Board to continue driving our strategy.”

Boucher joins the Company having most recently served as CEO and President of WIN Waste Innovations, a vertically integrated business with a platform of 50 strategically located collection, transfer, and disposal assets. He was previously the CEO and Executive Director of Transpacific Industries Group, a publicly traded waste management business in Australia. Prior to Transpacific, Boucher worked across the U.S. waste management industry for more than 20 years, serving in senior executive positions with Republic Services and Synagro Technologies and management roles with Waste Management and American Waste Systems.

“Keter and Waste Harmonics have long been leading players in the waste management space and the growth opportunities ahead for the combined company are impressive,” said Boucher. “The Company’s innovative and transformative approach to waste is driving better customer experiences, improved efficiency, and greater recycling and diversion. I was drawn to this opportunity because of the Company’s forward-thinking approach, focus on innovation, and terrific team and I look forward to partnering with Mike and Steve to accelerate the Company’s growth and expansion.”

“In addition to his extensive waste industry experience and track record of commercial success, we are also confident that Bob will continue to foster the close-knit, familial culture that has long been a hallmark of both Keter and Waste Harmonics,” added Schlussel. “Under Bob’s leadership, we are well positioned to build on our momentum and strengthen our position as one of the largest waste management services providers in the U.S.”

TPG Growth, the middle market and growth equity platform of global alternative asset manager TPG, acquired Keter in 2021 and made a significant investment in Keter’s combination with Waste Harmonics.

“Bob’s decades of leadership experience, strong track record, and innovative mindset set him apart in this industry and position him well to lead the combined company,” said BJ Loessberg, Business Unit Partner at TPG Growth. “We are pleased to partner with Bob, Mike, and Steve to drive continued strategic growth and strengthen the Company’s market position.”
