Hi Everyone, my name is Jacquie Bartlett! I’ve been a member of the RecycleSmart Sales Team for about 2 months, although I’ve been in the industry since 2014. I was born in Berlin, Germany but spent half of my life between Mackenzie and Victoria, BC. Early in my career, I worked in finance and software sales which required technical skills and consistent self-education to keep up with industry standards. It eventually paid off as I became one of the top sales representatives, but my motivation to achieve success has always been to give my kids and family a good life.
“I don’t believe that you have to sell to people when you’re doing the right work. When you choose to do something meaningful it is not work at all.”
Before I worked at RecycleSmart, I worked at Emterra and they introduced me into the waste and recycling industry. I learned first-hand where waste goes after we put it in the trash, and I began to look at the world differently and with a more sustainable mindset. Starting my career at RecycleSmart was an easy decision because of my background of finance, software, and sustainability that were all encompassed into one career. I had all these skillsets in different industries and when I realized these skills were transferrable into one company, I felt like it was the perfect match. I love being able to help the customer on several different levels as I can provide them with cost savings and global services with technology and measurable results. This is a very exciting and ever-changing industry that has great importance in today’s world, and I’m excited to work directly with customers who want to make an impact on our environment.
On a more personal level, I’m the grandmother to 4 grandchildren and married to an amazing man. We love beaches, travelling, yoga, and kickboxing. I hope you enjoyed taking the time to learn a little bit about my story. If you have any more questions about my career with the RecycleSmart team or if your company is looking for more sustainable options, I’m here to help!
