Joseph Patrick Byrnes – President and Chief Executive Officer
Mr. Byrnes is the CEO and President of EnviroTrac which he co-founded over 25 years ago. Joe received his BS degree in Geology from SUNY Binghamton and he obtained an MS degree in Hydrogeology from SUNY Stony Brook. His professional career spans over 32 years.
When Joe graduated from college in the 1980’s the environmental field was very young and jobs were hard to come by. While working as a carpenter in the construction field Joe got his first opportunity with Roux Associates and was hired to travel the US and sample rivers and creeks for herbicides. Since then he has been fortunate to work on just about every type of environmental project involving a wide variety of contaminants and remedial techniques. Joe’s goals are to continue to grow EnviroTrac organically as an industry leader and diversify our clients. Joe states, “It is very important to me that our employees have the opportunity to grow with the company, that they are professionally challenged and most importantly have fun.”
Although Joe has corporate responsibilities, he is very active in project related work, including the development of remedial strategies and the implementation of final remedies. Joe is a Licensed Environmental Professional (LEP) in Connecticut, Certified Professional Geologist (CPG) and holds Professional Geologist (PG) licenses in several States (NY, NH, PA, NC, VA and FL).
