PWGC is excited to announce the launch of our newly expanded Environmental Compliance Group, which was improved to meet the increasing demand for permitting and compliance services and evolving regulatory requirements facing our clients.

The expanded Environmental Compliance Group is now five times larger and comprised of professionals that possess a broad range of skill sets targeted to expand our capacity to better serve the growing needs of our existing clients and attract new clients.

PWGC Senior Vice President Kris Almskog, PG, and Vice President Maryann Ashworth, PG, have been tapped to the lead the new group and have been promoted to their current positions to reflect their accomplishments. We believe the expanded Environmental Compliance Group will increase opportunities within the group as well as provide clients with integrated services.
