Cox Enterprises Promotes Steve Bradley and Robert Fairey to Senior Directors
Cox Enterprises today announced that Steve Bradley and Robert Fairey have been promoted to senior directors, effective immediately. They will continue reporting to Keith Mask, assistant vice president of environmental sustainability.
“Earlier this year, we announced aggressive new goals for Cox Conserves, our national sustainability program,” said Mask. “With these goals, Steve and Robert’s roles have expanded greatly. They continue to be experts at creating and purchasing energy in ways that are good for the environment and our bottom line. They also oversee our water and waste initiatives that are making a significant impact on how we operate as a business.”
Bradley, senior director of environmental sustainability, helps manage the long-term strategy for the Cox Conserves program. He oversees Cox’s alternative energy and water conservation projects that have prevented approximately 120,000 tons of carbon from entering the environment since 2007. His team manages the company’s national employee solar program that provides incentives for employees who choose to install solar panel systems on their homes. He also oversees electrical and mechanical engineering for Cox’s facilities.
Bradley is a graduate of the Institute for Georgia Environmental Leadership and currently serves on its board. He is also a board member for the Perimeter Transportation and Sustainability Coalition and is on the Society of Cable and Telecom Engineers’ energy steering committee. He earned a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from Mississippi State University.
Fairey, senior director of energy procurement and waste diversion, has more than 25 years of experience in electricity, natural gas and utility partnerships. He develops and implements strategies to manage Cox’s overall energy portfolio, which includes identifying opportunities for operational and financial efficiency. He is an expert in the respective energy markets and local regulatory issues impacting Cox companies. Fairey also oversees the company’s recycling and waste diversion program. Under his leadership, the company has diverted 15,000 tons of waste from entering landfills since 2013.
He serves on the Clean Air Campaign’s board of directors and is active in several regional recycling organizations. Fairey graduated from the Georgia Institute of Technology with a degree in industrial engineering.
Cox plans to send zero waste to landfill in the next 7-10 years and become carbon and water neutral in the next 25-30 years.
