brought on board to help SECUR execute its aggressive growth strategy
PITTSBURGH, PA July 10, 2018 – SECUR (www.securllc.com), a privately owned, asset-based provider of transportation logistics, packaging, technical services and waste management for the hazardous/industrial, oil & gas, and nuclear/radioactive markets, announced today the hiring of Clifford J. Bright as Chief Financial Officer and Chris Vidovich as Senior Vice President, Sales.
These two longtime professionals in the waste management industry will help SECUR accelerate its already aggressive growth strategy to develop new waste treatment facilities and expand its assets and service offerings for customers.
Cliff Bright is an experienced financial professional who has served as CFO for several waste management firms during his 45-year career. He was Vice President of Finance and Administration and CFO for MHF Logistical Solutions, Inc., the previous company founded and owned by Jennifer and John Evanko, who are the founders and owners of SECUR. Cliff joins several other previous employees of MHF at this new venture that furthers the work they started at MHF to provide innovative waste management solutions for environmentally sensitive materials.
During Cliff’s eight-year tenure, MHF grew from six to 75 employees and from $8 million to $116 million in revenues.
Cliff has varied experience in acquisitions, consolidations, establishment and management of internal controls, multi-profit center accounting with detailed financial reporting, cost accounting, taxes, financial statement preparation and analysis, budget planning and administration, payroll and accounting and human resources. He also has negotiated bank and cash management arrangements.
Jennifer Evanko, managing member and CEO of SECUR, said, “Cliff’s expertise in managing the financial affairs of rapidly growing, private companies is invaluable to us. Plus, he understands our niche industry as well as we do. We know that he is capable of helping us grow and diversify.”
Cliff will oversee SECUR’s financial affairs for its two entities, SECUR LPT, LLC and SECUR O&G, LLC, including managing SECUR’s existing lines of credit with LegacyTexas Bank and the capital funds invested in SECUR by its private equity partner, Caruth Capital Partners.
Chris Vidovich, SECUR’s new SVP of Sales, is a “seller-doer” with more than 25 years of experience in managing large-scale event projects for the waste management industry. Prior to joining SECUR, Chris was VP of Project Services and Engineering and Consultant Vertical for Clean Harbors Environmental Services.
He managed Clean Harbors’ North American business line for all large-scale transportation and disposal projects; the national sales remediation business line; the on-site wastewater treatment division; and the engineering and consultant vertical lines of business.
Chris generated more than $100M in sales annually in one-time only, event-related sales and services. He generated and managed more than $1B overall in sales during his 25 years with Clean Harbors.
For SECUR, Chris will lead team sales and marketing efforts for the company’s multiple business lines, which include logistics, packaging, technical services, and waste management. He also is responsible for sales at SECUR O&G, LLC’s new Ben’s Run Oil and Gas Materials Management Facility in Friendly, WV. The Ben’s Run Facility serves the regional oil and gas industry with material separation, solidification, and repackaging of solid and liquid wastes for off-site disposal.
John Evanko, president of SECUR, said, “Chris has always been successful because he is able to translate customers’ needs and wants into service offerings that capitalize on the company’s strengths. We are confident that Chris will develop customer relationships that enable SECUR to realize its strategic goals.”
