Sikorski leaving CARE

Home News Sikorski leaving CARE

Georgina Sikorski, executive director of the Carpet America Recovery Effort (CARE), has informed the organization’s board she will resign her post shortly after the group’s Annual Meeting in April. In a March 5 letter, Sikorski told CARE chairman Werner Braun she is leaving to pursue other projects, but that she is, “very proud of the organization and what we have accomplished together.”

Sikorski has led the non-profit carpet recycling advocacy group since 2008. During her tenure, CARE’s membership has grown from 50 to over 400 active members. In addition, under her leadership the carpet recycling industry passed the significant milestone of two billion pounds of carpet diverted from U.S. landfills. Sikorski cites as her most significant accomplishment CARE’s leadership in the implementation and administration of California AB 2398, the nation’s first-ever extended producer responsibility legislation specific to carpet.

Braun said a search committee is being formed to find a new executive director for CARE. “Georgina’s leadership has been invaluable during this important time in CARE’s evolution and growth,” he said. “She will be missed.”
