Advancing Service


John Taddonio (BS '77, Political Science) has spent much of his career working in environmental services, and now he's stepping into a new role. As the Municipal Marketing and Government Affairs Manager for Advanced Disposal, Taddonio is responsible for positioning the company as the preferred provider throughout parts of Michigan and Indiana— he'll do this by building and maintaining relationships with elected and goverment officials. He'll also ensure Advanced Disposal provides exceptional service. 

While incredibly important, waste disposal may not seem like most interesting job out there, but Taddonio has the distinct opportunity to use his skills to help Advanced Disposal expand and strengthen as a business. At Casella Waste Systems, he did just that— turning the tide for the poorest performing area. Additionally, Taddonio has held the role of president and COO for Environmental Field Services, has held several positions with Allied Waste Services, and owned his own environmental industry recruitment firm.
