Stephanie Baker

Director of Market Development , KW Plastics

Stephanie strives to live in a world where we don’t have to talk about what, where, or how to recycle plastic. In the meantime, she gets to talk a lot.

As the Director of Market Development for KW Plastics Recycling Division, Stephanie speaks to the economic advantages and opportunities for plastics recycling. A hometown girl from KW Plastics’ headquarter operations in Troy, Alabama, Stephanie represents the world’s largest plastics recycler of HDPE and PP in projects surrounding sustainability, packaging design and increasing quality supply throughout North America.

Stephanie’s experience includes establishing closed loop recycling programs, beyond bottle expansion initiatives, policy, communications, economic development, strategic planning and community affairs.

Professionally, Stephanie is a member ISRI and serves as an active member of the Association of Postconsumer Plastics Recyclers (APR) Rigids Committee and Communications Committee. Stephanie is a board member for The Foundation for Plastic Recycling.

Previously, she has served as Chairman of the Southeast Recycling Development Council (SERDC) Board of Directors and SERDC 120: a voluntary initiative to explore public-private partnerships and strategic investments to boost recovery in the Southeast, which resulted in the Recycling Partnership. Stephanie was recently named a “Woman Breaking the Mold” by Plastics News.

At home, Stephanie serves on the Troy City Council and is an active volunteer in her community and church. She is a member of the Alabama Leadership Initiative Class II and was named a “Mover and Shaper” by Business Alabama magazine.
