Multigenerational Recycling Company in San Antonio
Harold Vexler – Chief Historian
The second generation of Vexlers to run the yard, Harold started working with his father, Abraham, in the early 1920s. At the time of his death in 2015, at 100 years of age, he served as Monterrey Iron historian and was frequently heard saying things such as, “In the times before aluminum ….” Up until weeks before his passing, Harold came in every day to visit with beloved coworkers and customers. He is greatly missed, but his memories and traditions remain a part of our every day.
Jack Vexler – Owner and CEO
Jack is the third generation to lead Monterrey Iron and has been at its helm since 1969. Jack is the lead contact for industrial accounts and chief problem solver – the buck stops with him.
Jordan Vexler – Ferrous Sales and COO
The “Pink Chimpanzee,” as the family lovingly calls her, started in 2009 and quickly found that scrap ran thick through her veins. Bringing much-needed organizational skills as well as intensity and intelligence, Jordan personally designed and oversaw the installation of our newest shredder and nonferrous downstream. Today, she handles our ferrous sales as well as being an active member of numerous industry groups. Jordan also heads up the charitable giving and community involvement of Monterrey Iron.
David Vexler – Account Services
Dave joined Monterrey in 2003 and started as a scalemaster. In 2008, he opened Toucan Recycling, a nonferrous satellite yard. After his return to the main yard, he began to work on new business, marketing, and inventory control. He is also the official office prankster.
Jeff Vexler – Toucan Recycling
Jeff is the eldest of the fourth generation of Vexlers involved in Monterrey Iron. He currently oversees the operation of our satellite collection facility, Toucan Recycling. Jeff is a walking sports encyclopedia. Don’t get him started if you don’t have an hour to debate.
Steve Goldberg – Nonferrous and Accounts Payable
Born and raised in “Big D,” Steve cut his teeth at Okon Iron & Metal in the early ‘70s. In 1980, Steve moved to San Antonio and joined the Monterrey Iron team. Today, he handles all of our nonferrous warehouse operations as well as all sports-related inquiries.
Richard Bibb – Comptroller
Georgia’s native son, Richard, got his accounting degree from Georgia State and moved to Texas in 1976. He joined Monterrey Iron in 1998 and handles all of the accounting. He enjoys racing cars and skydiving in his free time. A typical CPA, he can be found sipping coffee at the same donut shop prior to the break of dawn each morning – location not to be disclosed.
Alan Jones – Scale and Dispatch Manager
Alan has been the scalemaster at Monterrey since 2006 and has a memory that would make an elephant jealous. If you have a question, scrap-related or not, Alan can help you out.
Maryann Rodriguez – Human Relations
Better known by us as M.A., Maryann has been a key player at Monterrey since 2006. She handles safety education as well as human resources. Don’t let her sweet demeanor fool you – you WILL feel her wrath if you are caught without your hard hat on.
