Waste Management is to promote James Fish, Jr, currently senior vice president (SVP) of its Eastern Group, to executive vice president (EVP) and chief financial officer (CFO) on completion of financial reporting for the second quarter.
The group, based in Houston, Texas, announced that the appointment follows the decision of Steven Preston, its principal financial officer, to pursue chief executive officer (CEO) opportunities elsewhere. Preston joined Waste Management last year, following its acquisition of Oakleaf Global Holdings where he was president and CEO. He is expected to delay his departure until after the third quarter, to assist an orderly transition.
Fish joined Waste Management in 2001 and initially served as director of financial planning and analysis.
