Chris Fisher | “Ecopreneur” President
Chris Fisher founded Fisher Recycling in 1992, collecting glass, plastic, aluminum, tin, cardboard, and oyster shells from a few local restaurants. He grew the business quickly and has since exceeded 800 customers, consisting of hotels, offices, resorts and restaurants.
In 2004, Chris was appointed by Governor Mark Sanford to the Recycling Market Development Advisory Council (RMDAC). Chris continued to serve on the RMDAC until May 2010, when he reassigned his seat to his first franchisee from the Grand Strand area of Myrtle Beach. Currently he serves on the Board of Directors of the Sustainability Institute of Charleston, the Low Country Economic Development Council for the City of Charleston, SC First Citizens Bank Advisory Board and the Low Country Local First Executive Committee.
Elizabeth Fisher | Vice President, Director of Community Affairs
Elizabeth graduated from East Carolina University in 1988 with a BS in Hotel Restaurant Management, minoring in Business and Psychology. She and Chris married in 1992 when they moved to Charleston. Elizabeth worked in the food and beverage industry in Charleston before taking a “real” job (since Chris was the “ecopreneur”) at Wild Dunes Resort as a Conference Services Manager. She was there for five years until the birth of their son and at that point, she came on board, full time, with the family business. Since 1997, she has been handling the office functions and any other areas around the warehouse where she can get her hands dirty! She likes to be involved in community events and aspects of the industry that promote local businesses supporting one another.
