Austin Resource Recovery: Changes at the top

Monday, March 25, 2019 by Jo Clifton

While we were enjoying SXSW and spring break, Assistant City Manager Chris Shorter announced a shake-up in the leadership of Austin Resource Recovery. Sam Angoori, who has been interim director of the department since early 2017 when Bob Gedert moved to Cincinnati to get married, is now deputy director. Richard McHale, who has more than 25 years of experience with the city of Austin’s solid waste department, was named the new interim director. He will serve in that role until a new permanent director is named, according to a memo Shorter sent to employees.
