Rubicon Co-Founder Marc Spiegel Named a 2016 Atlanta Business Chronicle 40 Under 40 Honoree

ATLANTA, Nov. 01, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Rubicon, the worldwide leader in sustainable, cloud-based waste and recycling solutions, announced today that co-founder Marc Spiegel has been named to the Atlanta Business Chronicle’s “40 Under 40” list for 2016.

Marc Spiegel is a native of Louisville, KY, and comes from four generations of waste and recycling hauling experience. In addition to overall strategy, Spiegel oversees the Hauler/Vendor Management team at Rubicon, which helps businesses reduce operating expenses, implement recycling programs and save money by finding new and innovative ways to reduce, re-use and recycle waste.

“Marc and the Rubicon team were all concerned by the woefully under-evolved nature of waste and hauling and became inspired to build a company that would use both technology and innovative thinking to change the industry,” said Rubicon CEO Nate Morris. “Marc is a great leader and friend, and in addition to his work at Rubicon, he finds time to both mentor growing Atlanta startup companies as well as work on a social entrepreneurship program with the Weber School in Atlanta.”

“My grandfather – a charter member of the National Solid Waste and Recycling Association Hall of Fame – told me, ‘don’t be content doing things the way they’ve always been done,’” said Marc Spiegel. “That always stuck with me. Nate and I were determined to use technology to bridge the gap and force the industry to find a better way to serve businesses, consumers, and the environment.”

The Atlanta Business Chronicle will honor the 2016 “40 Under 40” class on Thursday, Nov. 3 at American Spirit Works. Click here for tickets and more information.
