Rubicon, a software company that provides waste and recycling solutions to businesses and governments worldwide, announced that Elizabeth Montoya, the company’s current chief of protocol and investor relations, and key advisor to the chief executive officer, has been appointed to Rubicon’s Board of directors, effective immediately.

Montoya joined Rubicon in 2011 as its third employee and since that time has led many transformative projects, including the company becoming a Certified B Corporation. This certification means that the company has met, and continues to meet, rigorous standards of social and environmental performance.

Montoya played a central role in crafting Rubicon’s original Environmental, Sustainability, and Governance strategy, and has overseen the implementation of world class governance and compliance standards.

In a prior role as director of Corporate and Social Responsibility, Montoya led Rubicon in becoming a signatory of the United Nations Global Compact, and in 2015 she was promoted to vice president of investor relations. This role saw her take on the management of the relationship between Rubicon and key investors such as Fifth Third Bank, Goldman Sachs, Wells Fargo, SUEZ, Wellington, and the New Zealand Superfund.

Before joining Rubicon, Montoya was director of programs and communications at the Humanities Council of Washington, DC.
