VLS Recovery Services has appointed John Magee as Chief Executive Officer. He replaces Mike Dilick, Founder of VLS, who has transitioned to an oversight and advisory role as a member of the VLS Board of Directors.
Magee joins VLS from Crane Worldwide Logistics, which he co-founded and served as President and CEO for the past 11 years. During his tenure, the company grew “from an idea to a successful enterprise, with nearly $1 billion in annual revenue, operations in over 30 countries and more than 2,200 employees.”
“When we started VLS Recovery Services in 2007, we had a vision to build a world-class railcar cleaning and waste management company that excelled in environmental, health and safety performance, and provided excellent service for our customers,” said Dilick. “12 years later, we have exceeded our expectations in every dimension and have positioned the company for continued success. Even with all VLS has accomplished, we strive to continue to strengthen our organization. With his exceptional leadership skills and track record, John is the right person to lead the company into the next phase of its growth. I look forward to working with him as a member of the VLS Board of Directors.”
“VLS is a leader in the railcar, waste management and marine services industries, and I am honored to have this opportunity to lead the company moving forward,” said Magee. “Under Mike’s leadership, VLS has established and maintained its well-deserved reputation while expanding both its range and capabilities. I am excited to join and collaborate with the rest of the VLS leadership team and each of the Company’s outstanding employees to build on recent momentum and capitalize on new growth opportunities.”
