Projects and initiatives in the recycling and materials management field often involve many different players such as recycling companies, product brand owners and suppliers, local and state agencies, environmental organizations, local business and community members and/or other stakeholders. Success requires a highly organized and sustained focus on desired outcomes, and keeping teams and stakeholders on the same page as they implement a clear and efficient work plan. Ed Boisson has developed and honed these skills in several large, complex and/or controversial projects.
