Nov. 10, 2017 - Ohio engineered fuel and waste-to-energy company Vexor Technology announced today its board of directors has appointed Mario Romero as Chief Executive Officer. Steve Berry will continue with Vexor as a board member, shareholder and in a senior leadership role focusing his efforts on business development and achieving our strategic mission of growth through additional Vexor Engineered Fuel facilities, as well as, developing additional outlets for the engineered fuel produced from our existing facilities.

“This is the perfect time for Mario to become our next Chief Executive Officer. We’ve selected a very strong leader at a time when our growth prospects are bright,” said Steve Berry, director and shareholder. Romero brings to Vexor a history of leadership, most recently as CEO of Custom Ecology, Inc., executive vice-president of US Ecology, Inc. and COO of EQ-The Environmental Quality Company. Previously, he was president of Energis LLC (now Geocycle), a Holcim US subsidiary, responsible for the alternative fuels and alternative raw materials program at eleven U.S. cement plants. His knowledge of the industrial waste business and alternative fuels industry will be a great asset for Vexor.

“I am joining Vexor at a very exciting time and am eager to lead the company in growing opportunities to serve existing and future customers,” said Romero. “Vexor’s unique Engineered Fuel helps customers and communities achieve their sustainability goals. This provides all of us an opportunity to leave the world in a better position than we were given by increasing landfill diversion rates while reducing greenhouse gasses and dependence on fossil fuels.”

Berry added, “our mission is to add two more facilities in the next three years while strengthening our management. Mario’s skills, experience and leadership will allow us to achieve our strategic goals. I will now have the time to focus on accelerating our future growth. Vexor’s future has taken a significant step forward today, with this appointment.”
