"Robert brings a lot of knowledge to the table in terms of how this business should run going forward," says Scott Dols, owner and CEO of BTR. "The past two years have really presented some challenges in terms of our economy - as well as the dynamics within the refuse rental market segment. Robert has done a fantastic job in developing and executing a comprehensive plan that puts BTR on a solid growth trajectory."
