LONGWOOD, FL – November 5, 2018 – Orlando Business Journal (OBJ) has honored Sean Jennings, President of Waste Pro USA, with its annual 40 Under 40 Award. OBJ selects young business leaders in Central Florida who “have proven their potential by taking leadership roles…consider community service just as important as career advancement…[and] are playing a key role in shaping our community.”

A third-generation garbage man, Jennings is the son of Waste Pro’s Founder/Chairman/CEO John Jennings and grew up learning about the waste industry while working summers with his father. After earning a degree in finance and economics from the University of Alabama, Jennings formally gained experience in the industry working on projects in Costa Rica, Georgia, and the Mississippi Delta.

In 2014, Jennings joined Waste Pro as Division Manager for the Tampa-Clearwater area. Two years later, he relocated to Waste Pro’s Sarasota-Bradenton division, where he led his team to build compressed natural gas and recycling facilities in Sarasota. Under his leadership, the division has been Waste Pro’s highest-performing in 2017 and 2018.

In 2016, Jennings was selected to be a member of Waste Pro’s inaugural Leadership Initiative class. The mentorship program is designed to develop a vibrant second generation of future leaders.

“Sean knows what it takes to be an effective leader and communicator, and he understands the ins and outs of the business,” said CEO John Jennings. “He is one of our many young leaders who have brought a new and innovative perspective to what we do, which is essential to Waste Pro’s bright future.”

Earlier this year, Waste360 also honored Jennings with its own 40 Under 40 Award during an annual conference in Las Vegas. Additionally, OBJ named Waste Pro the third-largest private company in Central Florida in its annual “Golden 100” list in September and the third-largest family-owned company in Central Florida in August.
