It's like I've come full circle.
Cynthiana, KY (PRWEB) April 2, 2010
E-Z Pack Manufacturing, LLC, a manufacturer of refuse truck bodies and a leading supplier of OEM parts for waste vehicles, has appointed Gordon Shaw to its board of directors. The former president of Marathon Equipment Co., Shaw joins industry icons Ted Flood and Fred Leach on the E-Z Pack board.
Shaw began his career in the waste industry over three decades ago, starting a hauling company with his college roommate shortly after graduating from West Georgia University. His first garbage truck, coincidentally, was an E-Z Pack. “It’s like I’ve come full circle,” says Shaw.
Shaw began his career at Marathon in 1981, in sales. He moved through the ranks at Marathon, becoming vice president of sales and marketing, executive vice president, and then president in 2003. Under Shaw’s tenure, Marathon evolved into an industry leader in the design and manufacture of waste processing and compaction equipment.
Always active in the industry, Shaw served three terms as chairman of the Waste Equipment Technology Association (WASTEC), two terms on the WASTEC board of governors, and is currently chairman of the board of trustees of the Environmental Industry Associations (EIA). He was named WASTEC Member of the Year in 2003, and in 2006 was inducted into the EIA Hall of Fame, an honor reserved for select industry leaders who have made significant contributions to both the waste industry and their local communities.
