We are pleased to announce an important change at EEM in this, the company’s 25th anniversary year. In order to better respond to the needs of our customers and distinct market segments, EEM will become two distinct entities effective July 1, 2018.
Our existing EHS consulting services will continue under the name ÉEM EHS Management Inc. EEM EHS will be directed by three senior members of the EHS team, who will become partners in the company. Véronique Tousignant, Guillaume Carle and Ross Szwec, together have nearly 35 years of experience with the firm. They will carry EEM’s EHS management, compliance consulting and audit business forward, as they have already been doing for several years.
EEM’s founder, Paul MacLean, will continue in a consulting capacity as President of a new entity, EEM Environmental & Social Impact Ltd. The new company will focus on impact assessment and communities work, notably in international markets.
The restructuring of EEM into two entities with distinct ownership is the product of years of successful consulting, and an organic succession plan involving close collaboration within the senior team. It has been designed from within, with the needs of our clients and employees in mind. No jobs have been lost in this process, and we fully expect more jobs to be created as our growth continues in this new configuration. The two firms will continue to be co-located in the same offices, and intend to collaborate on projects going forward.
We are pleased to be able to share this exciting news with our clients, employees and partners, and look forward to continuing shared success together.
Paul MacLean, Véronique Tousignant, Guillaume Carle and Ross Szwec
