Ed serves as NRC’s senior project and client relations manager for the Southern California operating region and is responsible for the management and execution of environmental projects from San Diego to Santa Barbara, CA..

A recognized HAZMAT response specialist, environmental remediation expert and problem solver, Ed has over 20 years of account and operational management experience, overseeing the management and execution of major environmental projects while driving operational efficiency and revenue growth in the environmental remediation, industrial services, and civil contracting sectors.

Ed’s credits include the management of NJDOT post Hurricane Sandy cleanup efforts in Seaside NJ and surrounding areas. His team coordinated and managed the transportation and disposal of over 50,000 tons of debris across four shore counties.

He also responded to a major train derailment over the Schuylkill River in Philadelphia, in which six railcars full of crude derailed. The project was successfully completed by transferring the contents from each car on the bridge to a receiving car located on the shore.
