April 21, 2022: Marcus Randolph has been appointed president and CEO of international lead battery recycler Ecobat, the company announced on March 17.
Randolph, who will continue as chairman of Ecobat’s board, succeeded Jimmy Herring — who Ecobat said was no longer with the company effective March 16.
Randolph said: “I want to thank Jimmy for his years of service and dedication to Ecobat. He led a significant transformation of the company, including the 2019 restructuring of Ecobat, rebranding of the company and creation of a new leadership team.”
Before Ecobat, Randolph was executive chairman of Boart Longyear, a Salt Lake City company and the world’s largest supplier of drilling services and drilling equipment to the minerals industries.
Randolph has also held several leadership posts with BHP Billiton in Australia.
Separately, Ecobat announced on April 11 that Scott Paredes had been appointed as vice president of treasury.
Paredes previously spent four years as vice president and treasurer at Southwire, the world’s second largest privately owned wire and cable manufacturer in the world.
Meanwhile, Chelsey Berend has been promoted to Ecobat’s director of global marketing and communications, the company said on April 13.
Berend joined Ecobat in January 2022 as chief of staff, working with the company’s executive committee.
