Mrs. Sickles previously served as Director of Finance for JAWS, Inc., a leading regional restaurant operator and franchisor with multiple locations, from June 2017 to August 2022.
Greenwave generated record revenues of $10.70 million during the quarter ending June 30, 2022, an increase of 56% from the $6.88 million in revenue Empire Services, Inc. generated in the same period in 2021.

“We are grateful to Mr. Jordan, our former part-time Chief Financial Officer, for his service and professionalism to the Company the past several months as we successfully uplisted to Nasdaq,” stated Danny Meeks, Chief Executive Officer of Greenwave. “Following the conversion of $39.16 million of convertible debt and accrued interest into shares of common stock at $6.02 per share on July 22, 2022, Greenwave has the strongest balance sheet in its history and we believe the Company is strongly positioned to grow its revenues and profit margins in the coming quarters. We’d like to thank Greenwave’s shareholders for their continued trust and look forward to reporting back on our progress.”
The Company is currently installing a second shredder at its Carrollton yard to process cars, household appliances and industrial products, along with a downstream system at its Kelford yard to increase its recovery yields of copper, aluminum, brass, steel, stainless steel, and other metals. The shredder and downstream system are on track to come online in the coming months and are expected to double the Company’s processing capacity, significantly growing its revenues and increasing its profit margins.
