Brett Jones Named 2015 President of Leading Trade Association

City Fibers’ Director of Sales and Procurement to Lead ACRI

San Gabriel, Calif., February 2, 2015 – The Association of California Recycling Industries (ACRI) has selected Brett Jones from City Fibers, based in Los Angeles, as its 2015 President. Jones recently served as Vice President and will succeed Kara Bouton from Allan Company in leading the statewide association.

“For the past several years I’ve had the pleasure of serving on the Board of Directors and working with recyclers throughout the state,” stated Brett Jones, ACRI President.  “As president, I am looking forward to continuing our association’s efforts to raise awareness of recycling issues and leading the development of recycling policy statewide.”

Brett Jones joined City Fibers after earning a Bachelor of Arts Degree in International Relations from the University of Southern California in 1996.  After working in one of the company’s Materials Recovery Facilities, Jones went on to become Plant Manager. In 1999, he became a sales representative for City Fibers, the department which he now oversees.  Mr. Jones manages the procurement of several thousand tons of paper, plastic and metal commodities monthly, all of which are diverted from California’s landfills.

“ACRI is committed to promoting free market principles and ethical practices,” stated Jones.  “On behalf of the tens of thousands of men and women employed by our industry, I will ensure our voices and priorities continue to be heard in Sacramento and throughout our state.”

Brett Jones will be installed as ACRI President, along with the 2015 Board of Directors, at the association’s annual Installation Banquet and General Membership Meeting on March 12 at the Los Angeles Athletic Club.
