In this role, Bynum will consult directly with TOMRA partners and customers to implement the right advanced sorting technology solutions designed to improve recycling recovery rates, increase product purity and throughput, and boost profitability. He takes over for Nick Doyle, who has been promoted to the newly created position of key accounts manager, North America.
“I’ve personally known and worked with Parker for several years and have experienced first-hand his unrelenting passion for recycling and advancing the circular economy as well as his strong work ethic,” says Ty Rhoad, regional director Americas for TOMRA Recycling. “Over the years, Parker has built a vast network of industry connections who respect his dedication to doing whatever it takes to ensure their success.”
Bynum brings to TOMRA Recycling more than a decade of industry and related sales experience. He served as business development manager with industry giant Waste Management’s hauling sector in the southern region, establishing the company’s recycling services. He also worked for Rehrig Pacific Company for four years, where he was an outside environmental sales representative to municipal and private hauling companies over a six-state region.
“TOMRA is a global organization with thousands of installations worldwide. This gives me the opportunity to take the best recycling practices from various markets and apply them to the western region territory. As the recycling industry continues to grow, so too does the need for further sorting automation with TOMRA technologies, and I am eager to customize these best practices for my customers’ specific sorting needs,” offers Bynum. “I look forward to building on Nick’s (Doyle) success, and I see potential for emerging markets like wood and textile recycling.”
