Chairman of the Board and CEO of Paragon Waste Solutions
Donald Moorehead is currently the Chairman and CEO of Highland Holdings, Inc. and for the past 15 years has been consulting on projects and businesses in New York, New Jersey, Ohio, Puerto Rico, St. Croix, Texas and Hawaii. Mr. Moorehead brings to SEER more than 30 years of C-level management experience in the solid waste industry and was noted as one of the most influential players in the solid waste industry during the 1990’s orchestrating multi-million and billion dollar mergers and acquisitions throughout the world.
Mr. Moorehead’s career began after graduating from the University of Tulsa in 1972 with a degree in Engineering Mathematics. From 1977 until 1984 Moorehead served in various positions with Waste Management. In 1985, Mr. Moorehead founded Mid-American Waste Systems, an integrated solid waste management entity and, as chairman of the board and chief executive officer, he led the company through an initial public offering (IPO). In 1994, as the founder and acting chairman of USA Waste, an integrated non-hazardous waste company, Mr. Moorehead bought Pittsburgh-based Chambers Development Company in a $725-million transaction that, at the time, created the fourth-largest solid waste company in North America. Just four years later, USA Waste, upon acquiring Waste Management in a $13 billion- dollar merger became the largest solid waste company in the world. Mr. Moorehead was Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of USA Waste from October 1990 until May 1994. From 1994 through August 1997, he was vice chairman and chief development officer.
After multiple successful exits in the waste industry, Mr. Moorehead was inducted into the Environmental Industry Association (EIA) Hall of Fame in June 1998. The award selection was based on a long career of service and outstanding contributions to the waste industry. Mr. Moorehead later continued lending his board expertise as a board member for SourceCorp, a NASDAQ listed business process outsourcing company, Metal Management and United Road Service, all successfully filing IPO’s during his tenure.
