Will Silton

Director, Operations

Will arrived at EnviroLogix to direct Operations having previously led inorganic growth (merger/acquisition) projects at parent company, Ensign-Bickford Industries (EBI). It was at EBI that Will had the chance to work with a small EnviroLogix team on a broad food chain growth strategy. That project gave him a renewed appreciation for, and interest in, the massive consumer and technological trends our industry faces.

Will brings a strong work ethic, a hearty value for customer focus, project management acumen, and a passion for analytical rigor to his role in Operations. Six years working in Mergers and Acquisitions; his lifelong experience as a team captain and coach; as well as being the oldest of three very competitive brothers; all leave him feeling energized by leadership challenges, which he in turn uses to motivate others to aim high.

He holds a BA in International Economics from Middlebury College and an MBA from Dartmouth’s Tuck School of Business. He chose Middlebury for its blend of strong academics and academic optionality; world class study-abroad program; and broad offering of extracurricular activities that included opportunities to explore the Green Mountains daily, and even take a class on urban trees.

Originally from Sudbury, MA, like many from the Boston area, Will has always been an effusive fan of Celtics basketball; his high school team was one game away from playing on the Boston Garden parquet in the state semifinals. Will is an avid cyclist, golfer, skier, basketball player, and foodie. Cycling takes him on a lot of adventures; the farthest away, so far, was in Tuscany, Italy.

Will is a big supporter of the Jimmy Fund and the Dana Farber Institute – for which he fundraises and annually rides in the Pan-Mass Challenge — proudly supports the World Wildlife Fund. In his time off, he loves traveling, woodworking, exercising with his 1-year-old golden retriever, and seeking new outdoor experiences around Maine.
