Shine has held many leadership positions within ISRI, including membership committee chairman, audit committee chairman, and member of the board of directors. In addition, he served as president of the ISRI Empire State Chapter from 2004-2006.

The three other national officers are: Chair-Elect Gary Champlin of Champlin Tire Recycling (Concordia, KS); Vice Chair Brian Henesey of Rocky Mountain Recycling (Commerce City, CO); and Secretary/Treasurer Colin Kelly of Schnitzer Steel Industries (Everett, MA). Three directors-atlarge were elected to the position for a first term: Dan Becker, Becker Iron & Metal (Venice, IL); Edward Kangeter IV, CASS Inc. (Oakland, CA); and Joel Litman, Texas Recycling (Dallas, TX). Stephen Moss of Stanton A. Moss Inc. (Bryn Mawr, PA) was elected to a second term as a director-atlarge. Andreas Ernst, Sennebogen (Stanley, NC), was elected as associate director.

“ISRI congratulates and welcomes a new slate of leaders to its Board of Directors,” said Robin Wiener, President, ISRI. “As the recycling industry continues to evolve and adapt to changing global dynamics, this leadership team is prepared to lead the way. They are dedicated to providing the value and service ISRI members have come to know for the past several decades, and committed to continuous improvement across the association to strengthen both the organization and industry. ISRI members are in good hands with this team.”
