SusGlobal Energy Corp., an environmental, agricultural and industrial biotechnology company, announced the appointment of Bruce Rintoul to the Company's Board of Directors (the "Board"). Rintoul will also serve on the Board's Corporate Governance and Nominating Committee and the Compensation Committee. Previously, Rintoul served as Senior Vice President of Operations at Veolia North America and previously held senior executive positions with environmental and industrial corporations such as Philip Services Corporation, The Churchill Corporation, RSC Equipment Rental, CEDA International Corporation, and Strike Energy Services. Rintoul also previously served on the Board of Directors for CEDA International Corporation in addition to his CEO and President responsibilities.
Rintoul left Veolia in March 2022 after more than 6 years with Veolia in Houston, TX, and Toronto, ON. As Senior VP of Operations at Veolia, he led the transformation of U.S. and Canadian energy generation, water/wastewater management, hazardous waste, and environmental service businesses through structural changes, business process improvements, and data management system implementations. The resulting operational and financial performance improvement subsequently facilitated the divestment of several Veolia businesses in North America.
"Bruce's appointment to the Board of Directors continues SusGlobal's strategy of expanding the strength and depth of its Board through the appointment of accomplished industry veterans," commented Marc Hazout, President and Chief Executive Officer of SusGlobal. "We believe his strong strategic, operational, and business leadership experience in energy, waste, and water markets across North America will be extremely valuable as SusGlobal continues to grow."
Rintoul graduated from the University of New Hampshire with a B.Sc. in Civil Engineering and is a Licensed Professional Engineer in Ontario, Alberta and British Columbia. He received his MBA from the University of Western Ontario, his ICD-DEP from the University of Toronto, Rotman School of Management and his ICD.D from the Institute of Corporate Directors, Calgary, Alberta.
Following this appointment, SusGlobal's Board of Directors is made up of five directors. Mr. Rintoul is an independent director.
