New Team Member

Posted on March 28, 2018

Earlier this month we had the pleasure of adding James Gunn to the team as a Staff Scientist I. James graduated from Auburn University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Geology. After graduation, he went to work as a Quality Assurance Technician for Hyundai Motor America in Montgomery, AL where he inspected newly manufactured vehicles to ensure quality standards. He then went back to Auburn to pursue his Master of Science in Geology. During his time there, he served as a graduate teaching assistant and lab technician where he instructed undergraduate labs and conducted lab analysis projects.

After achieving his master’s degree, James began working as a geologist for Polaris Resource Engineering in Birmingham, AL which started his career and passion for environmental compliance. He worked primarily in groundwater remediation involving leaky underground storage tanks, as well as conducting Phase I and Phase II site assessments and groundwater monitoring. Additionally,  he routinely used AutoCAD to draft basic site maps, geologic cross-sections, and various chemical concentration maps.

James will handle environmental compliance with LDAR and SPCC for the Environmental 360 pulp and paper clients located in Alabama, Florida, and Georgia.

James currently resides in Millbrook, Alabama. He enjoys spending time with family, the outdoors, and playing the guitar.
