SWANA Appoints Sara Bixby Deputy Executive Director
Silver Spring, MD. May 8, 2013. Sara Bixby, former SWANA International Board Member, Executive Committee President, and Life Member, has been appointed the organization’s deputy executive director, carrying the title of deputy executive director for administration, information technology, and financial management.
Bixby, who is currently director of the South Central Iowa Solid Waste Agency at Tracy, IA, began her career in solid waste management as a consultant in the early 1990s, and has been a leader in the field ever since.
“I fell into a solid waste management job without any experience or training in the field,” she explains. Speaking then as a longtime member, she recalls, “I know, from firsthand experience, what SWANA’s training and conferences can mean to somebody breaking into the industry and then trying to stay caught up with its changes.”
Bixby has served as a member of MSW Management’s Editorial Advisory Board since 2002, allowing us the opportunity to view her talents and industry first hand.
Turning to her role with SWANA, Bixby then says, “Because of my time on the SWANA Board, I also understand many of the challenges that we face. This is a great opportunity and I’m excited to work with the very talented people who make up SWANA staff and members across North America.”
Go Sara! We at MSW Management are as excited as you are for your opportunity, and we know you’ll make the best of it.
