Clean Harbors, Inc.

Rutledge, 60, will transition to the newly created position of President and Chief Operating Officer. He will retain his position as Vice Chairman. In conjunction with this promotion, Clean Harbors also announced that Robert E. Gagnon, 38, has joined the Company as Executive Vice President, Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer.

“Since his arrival at Clean Harbors in 2005, Jim Rutledge has played an instrumental role in managing the financial and administrative responsibilities of the Company through a period of rapid expansion,” said Alan S. McKim, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Clean Harbors. “After being named Vice Chairman in 2011, Jim also has made substantial contributions at the Board level. His commitment to our long-term vision for Clean Harbors and demonstrated ability to achieve results will be invaluable as we seek to extend our leadership position in the industry.”

Prior to Clean Harbors, Rutledge served as Chief Financial Officer of Rogers Corporation from 2002 through 2005, where he was responsible for financial, tax and legal functions as well supply chain operations worldwide. Prior to Rogers, he served as CFO at Baldwin Technology Company, Inc., a publicly listed manufacturer of controls, accessories and material handling equipment for the printing industry. He also served in various capacities, including vice president and treasurer, over a 20-year span at Witco Corporation, a $2 billion global specialty chemicals company. Rutledge began his career as a Certified Public Accountant at Price Waterhouse & Co.

“Rob Gagnon’s broad financial expertise makes him an ideal choice to be our next CFO,” McKim said. “He is a seasoned executive with experience running a large-scale finance organization for a Fortune 500 company. His strengths align perfectly with Clean Harbors’ current growth strategy as he brings a deep background in the areas of M&A, capital planning and business development. In addition, Rob began his career as an auditor. We are excited to have him join our executive team.”
