Terri Ward has joined Sparta Manufacturing, Notre Dame, New Brunswick, as vice president of business development, bringing nearly three decades of industry experience to the equipment company.
Ward was a key member of the team that grew SSI Shredding Systems, Wilsonville, Oregon. Working through detailed, long-term project management for size-reduction applications across the fuel, recycling and construction and demolition (C&D) markets has afforded Ward the opportunity to develop her project management skills, Sparta says. She also has developed an extensive understanding of the product, project and service requirements to ensure long-term customer retention and satisfaction.
“For years I’ve been impressed by Terri's passion, commitment, track record and depth of industry knowledge,” says Bruno Lagace, Sparta president and owner. “Terri embodies the Sparta culture of service. We look forward to her applying her vast experience to elevate Sparta's systems offerings in the areas of C&D recycling, mixed-waste processing, alternative fuel preparation, size reduction/recovery lines and more.”
“I'm looking forward to using my expertise to help customers develop comprehensive processing and recovery solutions with Sparta,” Ward says. “At the same time, growth can be challenging. Brand awareness and reputation are critical to future success. A key part of my focus will be on customer satisfaction and loyalty to help Sparta continue expanding responsibly.”
