He may be a self-described garbage man, but Morris has gilded ambitions. His company, Rubicon Global, based in Atlanta, is bringing an Uber-like approach to waste management by matching multinational clients with local haulers. With operations in all 50 states, he plans to go public in the next two years. More interesting is his other network: the Kentuckian has emerged as a major Republican power broker well beyond his hometown of Lexington. He’s established himself as a key connector in Silicon Valley and on Wall Street for Sen. Rand Paul, as the likely presidential contender builds a donor base—and he will figure prominently in any Paul bid as an ambassador to business leaders. Morris himself sounds destined to run for office: “Once I pick up all this garbage.”
