RES Expands Texas Operations Team
Adding the Team from Apache Ecological Service is the Latest Milestone in RES’ Texas Growth and Expansion
March 04, 2019
RES, the nation’s largest environmental solutions provider, has expanded its operational capabilities along the Gulf Coast by acquiring assets and client contracts from Apache Ecological Service, Inc. Also joining RES are members of the Apache team, including Brian Krueger, the longtime owner and president of Apache, who will serve as a client solutions manager for Texas and the Gulf Coast. The restoration crew joining RES is one of the most experienced ecological restoration teams in Texas, and will be integrated into RES’ Texas operational team.
The addition of Apache team members is the latest milestone in RES’ growth and expansion in Texas, happening alongside RES being awarded two large mitigation projects supporting the Texas Central bullet train and a municipal reservoir in North Texas.
These historic projects, along with the continued investment in mitigation banks and custom ecological restoration projects, demonstrate RES’ focus in supporting responsible infrastructure development across the Texas landscape. Furthermore, RES will also oversee the licensing and operations of Apache’s freshwater growing ponds located in Montgomery County, TX. The herbaceous species from this nursery have been an intregal part of restoring over 700 acres of freshwater wetlands since 2009 and will continue to support ongoing RES projects.
“We are excited to be bringing on board such an expert ecological operations team,” said Elliott Bouillion, CEO of RES. “Brian and his team bring a wealth of experience to our ecological restoration and coastal resiliency projects in Texas and along the Gulf Coast.”
“The Apache organization dedicated 30+ years to the development of innovative solutions for water-related environmental restoration and enhancement projects,” said Brian Krueger. ”With a commitment to our clients and a passion for restoring the environment, my team and I are excited to be joining a national leader.”
The addition of the Apache team will enhance the current operational capacity of the RES Gulf Coast staff while also supporting the current group of talented regulatory and sales professionals.
