MEMPHIS, TN – October 15, 2018 – Josh Vickery has been promoted to Divisional Vice President, managing the Southaven, MS and Memphis, TN divisions. Vickery, who previously served as Division Manager of the Southaven division, will now manage a team of more than 150 employees servicing over 85,000 residential customers and more than 2,100 commercial customers in eight counties across Tennessee, Mississippi, and Arkansas.

Vickery, who joined Waste Pro in 2015, was an inaugural member of Waste Pro’s Leadership Initiative in 2016. The program is designed to develop a vibrant second generation of future leaders.

Under Vickery’s leadership, the division has become heavily involved in the communities it serves. In addition to its support of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, the division participates in family-friendly holiday events, collaborates with local Cub Scout groups for trash clean-ups, and more. Vickery and other division staff are also members of every local Chamber of Commerce, meeting monthly to discuss new ways to impact the community. In 2017, the city of Germantown, TN declared June 20th National Garbage Collector Day to thank Vickery and his team for “exceptional service to the residents of Germantown.”

“I recognized the talent Josh had to be able to successfully function in a dynamic growth company like Waste Pro well before he became an employee,” said Waste Pro CEO/Chairman John Jennings. “When Regional Vice President Roland Joyner told me he had selected Josh out of many people he interviewed, I included Josh in our inaugural Leadership Initiative group. Josh has distinguished himself in putting together one of more talented teams in Waste Pro and has definitely branded our company as ‘the distinguishable difference’ in this market.”
