LEXINGTON, Ky. — Rubicon Technologies, Inc. announced that chief technology officer Phil Rodoni has been appointed by the Rubicon Board of Directors (the “Board”) as chief executive officer (“CEO”) and a member of the Board, effective October 13, 2022. Founding CEO Nate Morris will continue to serve as chairman of the board, director, and strategic advisor during this succession period. Osman Ahmed has been named as the lead independent director.
Rodoni’s appointment to the role of CEO is a key part of Rubicon’s strategic plan as the Company works to achieve its mission of ending waste through the digital transformation of the waste and recycling industry.
Rodoni has served as Rubicon’s chief technology officer since 2015. He came to Rubicon from Esurance where he held the role of vice president of software development. Prior to that, Rodoni also worked in senior technology positions at Charles Schwab and Travelzoo. Rodoni holds a Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Economics from the University of California at Berkeley, and a Master of Business Administration (MBA) from the Haas School of Business.
With over two decades of experience in technology innovation and product development, Rodoni has helped to make Rubicon a leader in the waste and recycling category, and his vision for the company’s future makes him a natural fit to lead Rubicon in its next stage of success and growth. In his new role, Rodoni will focus on a number of core goals for Rubicon, including accelerating the Company’s progress to profitability, investing in Rubicon’s leading digital marketplace and suite of products, and further developing the strategic vision and execution plan for Rubicon’s next phase of growth.
“Leading Rubicon from its founding has been an absolute privilege,” said Nate Morris. “Looking back on the last decade, I am immensely proud of what we have achieved – establishing more than 8 million service locations, expanding services to all 50 states and 20 countries, and successfully completing the process of becoming public on the NYSE. I have appreciated the opportunity to work with the Board to ensure the company builds on our track record of achievements and fulfills our mission to end waste. I know our platform, technologies, teams, and leadership are in good hands.”
