Veolia Environmental Services North America (VESNA) has appointed Jeff Adix president and CEO. He replaces Richard Burke, who recently left the company to serve as president of Advanced Disposal Services (ADS), which acquired the assets of Veolia ES Solid Waste.

In his new position, Adix will be responsible for the overall performance, growth and operations of the company, which includes the collection, treatment and recycling of hazardous wastes and turnkey industrial cleaning and maintenance.
Adix had worked for Veolia from 2000 to 2009. During this time, he served as a member of VESNA’s executive committee and held senior management roles of increasing responsibility, including senior vice president of support services and CFO for the company’s former solid waste business.

“I am very pleased to welcome back Jeff to the Veolia organization. He is a proven leader with over 20 years of management experience, both in the United States and abroad,” says Jérôme Le Conte, CEO of Veolia Environmental Services. “I have the utmost confidence in his ability to effectively lead Veolia’s waste operations in North America, where we are well-positioned to grow our service offering and market share within the industrial sector.”
