The Chazen Companies is pleased to welcome Richard T. Kampf, PG, LEP as an Environmental Services Director and New York City Office Director.

Kampf managed the office and staff, helped drive environmental and engineering business opportunities, and managed multiple environmental and engineering contracts with city and federal agencies. Kampf’s expertise lies in environmental due diligence, investigation, and remediation of E-designation, brownfield, Superfund, and spill sites, related strategic planning, and regulatory negotiations.

Kampf recently led a team awarded the 2019 Big Apple Award for Environmental Protection from the NYC Brownfield Partnership, and is currently working on projects across the City and in Connecticut.  Chazen has private and public environmental projects throughout New York City. Kampf will work on these as well as new client sites.

“We are very happy Rich has joined us” said Russell Urban-Mead, PG, Senior Principal, Vice President of Environmental Services, The Chazen Companies. “We believe his expertise will be an excellent addition to Chazen and our growing Environmental practice in the New York City metropolitan area. We look forward to announcing our new office location soon.”
