Chris Pier

Chris’ background in environmental services started nine years ago, when he assisted in building a startup company that ultimately became largest electronics recycling firm in the Rocky Mountain Region. He loved the recycling industry and spent a lot of his time in his lab where he would test materials for innovative reuses. Chris built a strong relationship with Goodwill over the years, and decided to join the Goodwill Denver team to show how Goodwill could be a leader in the electronics recycling industry. The success of the program led to him leaving Goodwill Denver to assist with the development of the same program at several other Goodwill locations. He is regarded as an industry expert in the field of electronics recycling and is a Lead Auditor for R2 Certification, the industry’s highest environmental Standard.
