Our People, Your Team

WASTELINQ is your team of ESC experts.

We’re not software people. We’re waste people who are using technology to share our deep knowledge of best-in-class environmental service and business practices. We’ve run a successful waste brokerage; we’ve managed disposal facilities; and we’ve helped thousands of customers to dispose of waste efficiently and effectively.

We know our solutions work because they’re the same solutions we used to build an industry-leading waste brokerage. We developed our processes, and the software that enables them, over the course of a decade and a half. They’ve been tested by hundreds of users, thousands of customers, and millions of transactions.

Our solutions don’t just promise to leverage optimized data, streamline business processes, and improve customer experience. Our solutions have already done those things. 

With over 100 years of combined environmental service experience, we are experts in optimizing environmental service companies by helping them to focus on what’s important. When you subscribe to WASTELINQ’s solutions, you’re expanding your resources to include our team.

Chris Ewing

Chris Ewing

President

Chris’ career in the environmental services industry includes leadership roles at Chemical Waste Management, Heat, Vopak, Rhodia, and Teris. In 2003, Chris founded Effective Environmental, an industrial waste distributor that he led from start-up to divestiture. He knows firsthand the challenges an ESC faces in growing a business. The solutions WASTELINQ offers are the solutions Chris used to overcome these challenges.

Ken Odom

Ken Odom

Chief Financial and Administrative Officer

One of the biggest challenges for ESCs is turning disparate pieces of data into useful and actionable information. Ken helped Effective Environmental optimize its data for tactical and strategic decision making. The tools he used are a part of WASTELINQ’s software. Ken frequently advises clients about how to leverage their data to streamline business processes.

Sean Easton

Sean Easton

Director of Sales and Business Development

Many ESCs reach a growth ceiling because of technical complexities and tedious manual processes that mean leaders are working in the business instead of on the business. Customer experience begins to suffer as internal demands take away from customer facing activities. Sean used the WASTELINQ solution to break through the growth ceiling, restore customer focus, and triple Effective Environmental’s sales.  He shares with ESCs how to use WASTELINQ’s solutions to drive profitable growth.

Huy Tran

Huy Tran

Director of Software Development

While many ESC challenges are similar, no two ESCs conduct business in exactly the same way. With more than eighteen years of experience architecting, building, testing, and deploying enterprise applications and custom software solutions, Huy’s strength is in developing technology solutions for complex ESC business problems. Huy spends most of his time understanding each ESC’s business needs and crafting technology solutions to address them.

Mike Ewing

Mike Ewing

Director of Data Migration and Integration

Deploying a new technology solution can be a daunting project, especially when it means moving data from one or several old systems to the streamlined WASTELINQ solution. Mike was the principle architect of the original WASTELINQ platform and has a deep understanding of data tables and structures. He works to understand the ESC’s legacy platforms and to ensure that all historical data is integrated seamlessly into the WASTELINQ platform.

Warren Roberson

Warren Roberson

Director of Distribution and Technical

An ESC ought to spend more time cultivating customer relationships than vendor relationships, but allocating time to customers can leave room for profitability to suffer if disposal routing and costs are not monitored. Warren’s job is cultivating disposal relationships and advising about the most economical routing decisions. His work allows the ESC to spend more time generating customer opportunities.

Dana Carter

Dana Carter

National Sales Manager

Unlike most technology solutions, WASTELINQ’s efforts don’t end once the contract is signed. We walk with you through a thorough implementation process that includes data mapping, customization, training, and deployment support. Dana walks each ESC through this process and then becomes a key point of contact for assessing future technology and outsourced service needs.

Villma Regaldo de-Vera

Villma is a technical expert who ensures that waste streams profiled through WASTELINQ Network are complete, accurate, and cost efficient.

Vicki Busby

Brandy Stewart

Brandy Stewart

Network Account Executive

Every WASTELINQ software solution, from bug fixes to new product roll outs, undergoes functionality and stress testing to ensure that the software works as designed, that the customer experience is as expected, and that the system can withstand the load. Having worked for some of the largest disposal facilities in the nation and at a waste brokerage, there’s not much that Brandy hasn’t seen. Brandy is especially skilled in helping to design Network solutions that make the most unique challenges seem routine.

Russell Radke

Russell Radke

Logistics Coordinator

Transportation can be both a hassle and an expense, especially when an ESC isn’t able to schedule full truck load shipments. Russell works to schedule in-slots and optimize freight across all Network orders, relieving ESCs of a huge burden and saving them money.
