SCS Engineers is 100% employee-owned electing its Board of Directors. Following our November Board Meeting, we are pleased to announce the promotion of several key professionals, including Robert Dick in Virginia and Michelle Leonard in California, as Senior Vice Presidents.
These professionals inform our business strategies and technical directives while providing the personal service clients expect from SCS. Every executive remains in the field listening to and serving clients – that’s the benefit of employee-ownership – no desk jockeys here.
Bob Dick supports landfills throughout the eastern seaboard and Mid-Atlantic, including over 150 landfill gas projects. He helps SCS clients to meet their Clean Air Act compliance goals and use methane gas for energy, reducing emissions. Bob is a civil and environmental engineer with expertise in solid and hazardous waste management. He manages SCS’s landfill and landfill gas engineering solutions for clients in more than 15 states and several foreign countries. “Bob plays a key role in our success,” said Jim Walsh. “His work and dedication to his clients help them implement environmental solutions that can be employed in other parts of the U.S. and globally.”
As a sustainable materials management leader, Michelle Leonard, well known throughout the waste industry, is also SCS’s National Expert in Solid Waste Planning, Recycling, and Sustainability. She has over 30 years of environmental consulting and project management experience, including solid waste management planning and facilities focusing on reducing, reusing, and recycling waste materials. Michelle is a long-time proponent of integrating the principles of a circular economy into the waste industry. “Michelle informs some of the largest cities and waste company programs in the country,” said Jim Walsh. “Her knowledge and dedication to her clients, industry, and within SCS earn her the position of Senior Vice President and our respect.
