Chris Lockwood, former Waste Pro divisional vice president in Southern Mississippi, has been promoted to regional vice president. Lockwood will manage the newly-formed Southern Mississippi region, which includes Waste Pro’s Hattiesburg, Gautier, Gulfport, Brookhaven, and Natchez operations.
Lockwood joined Waste Pro in 2013 as a Financial Analyst in the corporate office in Longwood, Florida. The following year, he became a Management Trainee, and was promoted to Division Manager in 2015.
In 2018, Lockwood was appointed divisional vice president, managing Waste Pro’s Natchez, Brookhaven and Hattiesburg divisions. He led the teams in those offices in overseeing daily operations and expanding across the area. In Hattiesburg, where Lockwood began his management career, Waste Pro is now the only residential service provider because of its exceptional service.
“It is an honor and privilege to lead such a talented and dedicated group of solid waste professionals,” Lockwood said. “The new Southern Miss region, as a team, is focused on implementing the highest possible levels of customer service and providing viable and long-lasting careers for our employees.
“Further, Waste Pro adds value in establishing strong partnerships with local businesses and contribute unparalleled community involvement in our footprint.”
