The end of last month was the annual company meeting for the growing Environmental 360 team. Everyone gathered in Murfreesboro for two days to set goals and focus on the year ahead. We were happy to have two new team members begin their very first day with Environmental 360 during the company meeting.
Ed Diaz is a Project Scientist I with Environmental 360 and has over 20 years of experience in environmental compliance with 12 of those years being specifically in LDAR. Ed has completed LDAR monitoring, reporting, training, project setup, database startup/management, tagging, and audits within the chemical industry. He has an extensive knowledge of LeakDAS and has developed internal auditing/training programs.
Prior to Environmental 360, Ed was an LDAR Field Services Manager for major petrochemical facilities in Texas and Kentucky. He ensured overall compliance of the facilities and managed the program implementation and technician management and training at these sites.
At Environmental 360, Ed has already begun to develop the company’s presence in the chemical industry especially in the Kentucky region. Ed has a reputation for taking care of his clients and doing whatever it takes to get the job completed. He will continue to support Environmental 360 clients in the same way. Ed will also work with other environmental compliance projects outside of LDAR throughout the Kentucky region and beyond.
We also welcomed Chris Sanders as a Project Scientist I to the Environmental 360 team. Chris graduated from Troy University in 2011. After graduation, he went to work as a Freight Broker for Coyote Logistics where he coordinated various shipments of goods, acting as liaison between shippers and carriers.
In 2014, Chris joined Interfor as a Logistics Coordinator and was later promoted to Logistics Specialist. During his time at Interfor, Chris helped manage truckload coverage and freight cost for Interfor’s lumber production in the southeastern United States.
After working five years in the lumber industry, he joined Environmental 360. Chris will handle environmental compliance with LDAR and SPCC for our pulp and paper clients located in Alabama, Florida, and Georgia. The Environmental 360 clients in this region will be well cared for with his proven success of managing projects and client expectations.
As the company continues to grow and evolve, it is important to assemble as a team to discuss the specialties each person brings. During our annual meeting, we broke into small group circuits to better focus and learn where people have grown. This understanding will help us as we continue to provide compliance solutions to our clients and stay up-to-date on regulations.
The meeting concluded with packing food bags for local school children who would otherwise not have food to eat over the weekend. This was a fun time of teamwork and a time of reflective thankfulness for the success of Environmental 360 over the years.
Environmental 360 is thankful for both its team members and clients who have made the company what it is today. Our team works hard during the year to provide the best service possible to our clients, and we enjoy spending these two days together to have a chance to play hard. We cannot wait to see what 2019 has in store for us.
