Thermostat Recycling Promotes Myers to Executive Director

March 24, 2023
Now in her seventh year at TRC, Danielle Myers has been involved in the sustainability industry since 2013.

Thermostat Recycling Corp. (TRC) promoted Danielle Myers to executive director. She joined TRC in December 2016 as executive administrative assistant/office manager and was promoted to operations/compliance manager in 2018. In her new position, Myers will focus on the recycling program’s performance while managing the processing facility and maintaining regulatory compliance.

“I am grateful for this promotion because TRC has allowed me to engage in my passion for environmental sustainability,” she said. “One of the most important aspects of any position is working toward a goal that improves people’s lives. TRC does that every day by working to recycle mercury-containing thermostats and keeping our promise of a cleaner environment. I welcome the challenge and look forward to continuing to grow in this new role.”

Myers has been involved in the sustainability industry since 2013. Her background includes working with utility companies and their customers to lower energy usage and qualify for rebates. She also helped for-profit companies achieve B Corp certification by meeting rigorous social and environmental performance, accountability and transparency standards.

“Danielle has demonstrated exceptional leadership and resourcefulness throughout her career at TRC,” said Ralph Vasami, executive vice president, TRC. “[She] grew through the ranks because of her commitment, work ethic and willingness to expand her industry expertise. Her strategic vision of the industry and our mission and the challenges we will face make her ideally suited for this new leadership role.”
