"Jennifer is a true advocate for the recycling industry but more importantly brings real-world experience from multiple angles of the industry into the media and marketing side," said Brett Ekart, founder of Recycled Media and owner and CEO of United Metals Recycling. "She brings years of insights, leadership, and an exceptional networking ability to Recycled Media as we continue to build out this specialized marketing company focused solely on bringing awareness and recognition to the best players in and around the recycled materials industry."
