Keter Environmental Services Appoints Santiago Perez as Managing Director | News


STAMFORD, Connecticut – (BUSINESS WIRE) – January 4, 2022–

Keter Environmental Services (“Keter”), a full-service recycling and waste management company focused on providing first-class recycling and sustainable waste management programs, today announced the appointment of Santiago Perez to the CEO position. Steven Schlussel, who founded Keter in 2011 and served as CEO and chairman of the company until 2021, will retain his seat on its board of directors and continue to serve as chairman as he focuses on major customers and develop the company’s customer base.

Mr. Perez has over 30 years of experience in the industrial and technological services industry. He joins Keter after nearly four years at Schneider Electric where he most recently served as Chief Commercial Digital Officer and Senior Vice President for US Services & Solutions. In this role, Mr. Perez was responsible for accelerating the growth of the company’s digital IoT solutions in the United States and leading the energy management business and industrial automation services of the company and the Strategic Customers and Customer Transformation teams in North America.

“Santiago is a proven leader and business builder,” Schlussel said. “When we launched Keter over ten years ago, we recognized the great improvements we could make to the fragmented recycling and waste management industry and the economic and environmental benefits we could offer to customers. I am deeply proud of what we have accomplished and there are always opportunities for future growth. Santiago’s experience leading public companies, integrating acquisitions, and managing sales and operations will be invaluable as we work together to chart a course for Keter’s future.

“Keter has built an enviable position for himself in an extremely competitive market,” said Mr. Perez. “I am energized by our team, our leadership, our purpose and our offering – these are the building blocks that need to be in place to successfully and rapidly scale a service company like Keter. With the increased focus on ESG, high quality recycling and waste management services now deliver both superior and inferior benefits to businesses in all industries. Keter’s unique use of technology to deliver our wide range of services across all industries and geographies will continue to be a key differentiator as we expand into new markets.

Prior to Schneider Electric, Mr. Perez held several leadership roles, overseeing the growth of various global companies during a 17-year tenure with Johnson Controls. These included the vice president and general manager Europe, Middle East, Africa, Latin America, heading the company’s sales, distribution, subcontracting and service operations, as well as the vice-president president of Global Business Lines & Operations, where he led the company’s global supply chain, product management, development and engineering. He started his career managing strategy and execution in Latin America for United Technologies. Mr. Perez currently serves on the board of directors of Itron Inc.

Mr Perez’s appointment as CEO comes at a time when Keter is enjoying tremendous momentum. Last week, the company announced the acquisition of M-PASS Environmental, an Atlanta-based independent waste management and recycling solutions company. The acquisition follows the announcement in November of a significant investment from TPG Growth, the growth and mid-market equity platform of the alternative asset management company.

“We are delighted to welcome Santiago to a clear inflection point for Keter,” said BJ Loessberg, Business Unit Partner at TPG Growth. Steven and the team have put Keter on a formidable growth trajectory. Adding Santiago’s decades of experience in scaling and optimizing businesses in industrial services will allow us to continue to capitalize on growing demand for Keter’s full range of services, the Keter team and our clients will undoubtedly benefit from his leadership and expertise.
