Environmental Business Journal Recognizes Firms for Growth and Innovation

OLATHE, Kan. — Environmental Business Journal®* (EBJ), a business research publication which provides high value strategic business intelligence to the environmental industry*, has honored Terracon for multiple business achievement awards.

“A number of companies exceeded the norms of low single-digit growth with double-digit growth or ambitious ventures into new practice areas or technology development,” said Grant Ferrier, president of Environmental Business International Inc. (EBI, Inc.), publisher of Environmental Business Journal.

Terracon was recognized for:

  • Project Merit: Phytoremediation in Northern Illinois, Linda Yang, P.G., senior principal;
  • Business Achievement: Mergers & Acquisitions, Kristi Tahmasiyan, director, mergers and acquisitions, and
  • Industry Leadership: Brownfields, Belinda Richard, national Brownfields program manager.

“Terracon is proud to be recognized by EBJ for the excellent work we’re providing for our clients,” said Lori Cathcart, a national director of environmental services in Terracon’s Orange County, office. “Our experienced team of environmental professionals have the skills and knowledge of regulations and local conditions needed to provide solutions to today’s most demanding challenges.”

The annual EBJ awards, announced earlier this year but postponed during the pandemic outbreak, are scheduled to be presented at a special ceremony at the Environmental Industry Summit XVIII this month. The Environmental Industry Summit is an annual three-day executive retreat hosted by EBI, Inc., in San Diego.

* Environmental Business Journal provides strategic information and market forecasts for executives involved in 14 business segments, including environmental remediation, water & wastewater, air pollution control, environmental consulting & engineering, hazardous waste, instrumentation, pollution control equipment, waste management, resource recovery, and solid waste management.
