He will be a member of the Company’s Executive Leadership team.
Mr. Beswick joins Clean Earth after spending nearly 30 years in the environmental services industry, most recently as the Chief Commercial Officer at Valicor Environmental Services. Prior to this, he was Chief Executive Officer (U.S. Operations) of Tradebe Environmental Services. In this role, Mr. Beswick was responsible for 28 locations, 10 waste management facilities and more than 900 employees. Under his leadership, the company recorded its highest year over year earnings growth, successfully completed two acquisitions, and instituted safety and environmental compliance initiatives resulting in significant decreases in injury rates. Prior to serving as CEO, he held progressive leadership positions, including Executive Vice President, Sales and Services, Executive Vice President, Business Development and Regional Sales. Mr. Beswick also brings his experience as Vice President, Recycling at Clean Harbors Environmental Services to Clean Earth.
“Jeff has a proven track record of success throughout his career,” said Nick Grasberger, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Harsco Corporation. “He is an accomplished leader who has led large, highly regulated businesses with expertise in driving growth and transformation. I am pleased to welcome Jeff to Clean Earth, and I am confident that his industry knowledge, relentless pursuit of safety and compliance, and high impact leadership style will be an asset to our division.”

He succeeds Jim Bell, who returned to the industry from retirement last July to serve as Interim Senior Vice President and President, Clean Earth. Mr. Bell will leave the division in late summer after transitioning Mr. Beswick into his new role.
“I want to thank Jim for his many contributions as our Interim President of Clean Earth during some difficult industry challenges,” said Mr. Grasberger. “In the third quarter last year, under Jim’s management, the division recorded its best quarter ever under Harsco ownership.
