San Diego-based CP Group has announced that Terry Schneider, former director of post collections at Phoenix-based Republic Services, has been appointed president and chief operations officer. He replaces John Willis, who is retiring from the company after 27 years. 
Schneider has 23 years of experience in the solid waste and recycling industry. He most recently led the Corporate Recycling Operations Group at Republic Services. His previous role with the company was in market development, having led the Rail Operations Group.
“It is a pleasure and privilege to join the CP Group team at this point in their history,” Schneider says. “With the global demand for recycling services and aggressive sustainability efforts that are vital to many organizations, the challenges are exciting. We look forward to keying in on the customer experience with the latest recycling technologies along with innovative operational solutions.”
As the new president and COO of the CP Group, Schneider will be responsible for overseeing sales, engineering, research and development and all other aspects of business operations and strategy for the five companies under the CP Group: CP Manufacturing (www.cpmfg.com), Krause Manufacturing (www.krausemanufacturing.com), MSS (www.magsep.com), IPS Balers (www.ipsbalers.com) and Advanced MRF (www.advancedmrf.com).
Schneider will manage the vice presidents of these five companies and work directly under Bob Davis, CP Group CEO and owner.
“I’m very excited that Terry has accepted the leadership role here at the CP Group,” Davis says. “His background, training, skills and business ethics are exactly what we need to take full advantage of the strengths of our various divisions and continue to integrate them into one powerful team. He ushers in a new era for the CP Group of companies.” 
According to the CP Group, this is a pivotal time as new markets are entered, new technology is developed and the group’s five companies merge as one brand. Schneider will be a driving force as the CP Group continues to evolve, the company says. 
The CP Group is a leader in engineering, manufacturing and installing material recovery facilities (MRFs) for single-stream recycling, construction and demolition recycling, municipal solid waste recycling, commercial and industrial recycling, front-end waste-to-energy systems, electronics recycling and more.
