SCOTTSDALE, AZ PM Environmental hires Bob Drake as Senior Consultant and Regional Manager of its Scottsdale, Arizona, -based operations. The addition of Drake will continue to solidify PM's western expansion. Drake comes to PM with more than 30 years of national public- and private-sector service in various areas of the environmental profession including environmental chemistry, waste treatment, remediation compliance, permitting, and due diligence, among others.
Drake will help grow and manage PM's western market. Throughout his career, Drake has successfully leveraged his deep business relationships throughout the U.S. to establish strategic partnerships and grow business.
