The Board of Directors of Eastman Chemical Company has elected Donald Slager as a Director. Slager is the former Chief Executive Officer for Republic Services, a $15 billion leader in the environmental services industry.

“We are delighted to have Don join our Board of Directors. He brings a wealth of experience and knowledge in the environmental services sector, which is critical for Eastman as we pursue our vision of creating a more circular economy for our products and solutions,” said Mark Costa, Board Chair and CEO. “His expertise, proven leadership, and unique insights will be great assets to our Board and our company.”

Slager retired as CEO of Republic Services in 2021, after serving in that role since 2011. He joined the company in 2008 as President and Chief Operating Officer, following the merger with Allied Waste Industries where he held the same position.

Slager started his career in the environmental services industry in 1980 at Waste Management, and went on to hold various leadership roles at National Waste Services, Inc., before its merger with Allied.

In addition to his position on Eastman’s Board of Directors, Slager currently serves on the board of Martin Marietta Materials, a leading supplier of construction aggregates and heavy building materials.
