Doug Sebastian’s retirement from Harris Waste Management Group, Inc., effective July 17, 2015.
Doug will remain Vice President of Sales and Marketing until his retirement, after which he will serve as Consultant to the company for an indefinite period of time. As a consultant Doug will work on specific projects assigned by Avis.
Sebastian began his employment with Harris on August 1, 1993 as a Regional Sales Manager for Midwest Region. Two years later, in 1995, he accepted the position of Vice President of Sales and Marketing and relocated his family from Ohio to Georgia and has remained the Vice President to this day.
Since Avis’ purchase of Harris on December 31, 2013, Doug’s leadership has been invaluable in the area of sales and knowledge of equipment and the industry, as well as strong customer relationships. We wish Doug all the best and are grateful for his continued involvement at Harris.
Doug shares these comments: “I would like to thank all of you for your support, dedication, and cooperation over the years. It has been a pleasure working with each of you and I have enjoyed my 22 years here. Avis has been kind to recognize my efforts; for that, I am most grateful and look forward to continue working with Harris/Avis as a consultant.” My retirement message is simple. “Work hard when you need to, work hard as a team, and give your best to the company without calculating your returns; they will come in due time.”
Thank you for your support of and business with Harris Waste Management Group, Inc. We look forward to continued, and increased, success together in the future.
