Aug. 2 — Progressive Waste Solutions Ltd. is losing the only CEO the company has ever known due to retirement.

Keith A. Carrigan plans to leave from the Toronto-based solid waste management company at the end of this year, but will remain as a consultant to senior management until June 30, 2012.

President and Chief Operating Officer Joseph D. Quarin, who also has been with the company in various roles since its creation 11 years ago, will become the new CEO. Quarin joins the company’s board immediately.

William P. “Bill” Hulligan, currently head of the company’s U.S. operations, will become president and COO of the entire company, formerly known as IESI-BFC Ltd., on Jan. 1.

“We appreciate the significant contributions Keith has made in delivering the company´s exponential growth and financial results during his tenure. As a result of his work, we now have a solid foundation to support a seamless management succession,” said James J. Forese, non-executive chairman of the board.
