Rob takes a no-nonsense approach to business, with quantitative metrics and a "facts-first" attitude towards project implementation and stakeholder engagement, while his technical ideology pushes the envelope towards the development of more reliable, sustainable, and cost effective remediation solutions.
He is an internationally recognized expert in remediation technology, with 15 years of professional experience developing, driving, and managing the technical implementation of large-scale and highly complex projects around the world. His expertise focuses strongly on thermal remediation, bioremediation, and combined in situ remediation strategies with a powerful supporting background in organic geochemistry, thermodynamics, microbiology, hydrogeology, environmental engineering, and electrical theory.
As the leader of The Group, Rob is responsible for developing and implementing the values, vision and strategy that define our company. He is responsible for ensuring that projects are completed safely, successfully, and to The Group's highest standards. From early planning through project closure, he partners closely with clients, regulatory agencies, and project stakeholders to ensure proper communication and continuous engagement. While he is committed to all aspects of the company, Rob takes a particularly involved role in the technical design and implementation of projects and leads The Group's R&D efforts.
Throughout his career, Rob has developed hundreds of remediation end-point specific conceptual site models, remediation system designs, and operational strategies, and has lead the implementation of over 35 projects using in-situ and ex-situ thermal remediation and combined in situ remediation strategies which successfully met cleanup criteria and collectively removed over 5,500,000-lbs of VOCs and SVOCs.
His ability to generate novel solutions to complex problems through innovative thinking alongside his unique ability to navigate the highly technical as well as complicated interpersonal and inter-party dynamics inherent to large-scale cutting-edge projects, has allowed some of the largest, most complex thermal remediation projects ever implemented to meet successful remediation end-points on-time and under budget, including:
When he’s not working, Rob is probably off with family and friends enjoying fresh air and good food. He is an avid hiker, backpacker, and fair-weather mountaineer. When he’s not getting lost in the mountains, you’ll find him somewhere in the ocean – kiteboarding, scuba diving, paddleboarding, or just floating around in the waves. His passion for nature is only surpassed by his unyielding love of pizza.
