Phoenix Suns Charities announces the naming of Tim Benter to its Board of Directors.

Tim Benter is the vice president and deputy general counsel of Republic Services, Inc. based in Phoenix, Arizona. Republic is the nation’s second largest environmental services firm providing waste collection and recycling services across the United States.

Tim has been with the Company for more than 13 years in various capacities, and currently oversees from the legal side the Company’s mergers and acquisitions, waste to energy development, national accounts, certain complex environmental matters and Western Region operations.

Tim received his B.S. in finance from the University of Maryland and his J.D. from Nova Southeastern University in Davie, Florida. He relocated with his family to the Phoenix area from Boca Raton, Florida approximately three years ago following Republic’s merger with Allied Waste Industries in 2008.
