Philip J. Lagas

Phil earned his reputation for delivering what clients value by adhering to a simple tenet: “When we listen, we understand. When we understand, we find the best path to solve our clients’ needs. And only then can we deliver the value our clients seek.” Phil is expanding that philosophy to our company, ensuring staff use active listening and creative thinking to develop and deliver approaches that address our clients’ unique needs.

As Chief Client Officer and Executive Vice President, Phil leads our consulting and construction operations with that client focus. He is responsible for meeting our strategic and business objectives and works with our client and technical leaders to develop and implement our market and project delivery strategies.

Phil has more than 30 years of experience working with private and government clients to deliver needs-based solutions to their environmental permitting, compliance, and remediation challenges. He also works with industry associations and regulatory agencies to develop and improve environmental laws and regulations.

Phil is a graduate of Lehigh University, where he earned a Bachelor of Science degree in environmental sciences and resource management and a Master of Science degree in geology. He is a registered professional geologist in Arizona.

“In our business, technical acumen is assumed by our clients. What sets us apart is our deep understanding of our clients and their organizations, adapting our work to how they get things done, and, most importantly, delivering what they value. All of that results in an exceptional client experience.”
