Elliott brings over 30 years of operational excellence to his leadership role as President and CEO of RES, where he is focused on delivering ecological and water resource solutions that address the delicate balance of economic development and environmental stewardship. RES’ product solutions enable developers from both commercial and government sectors to obtain required permits and maintain regulatory compliance when projects impact environmentally sensitive areas including wetlands and streams, endangered and threatened species, as well as stormwater and nutrient compliance requirements.
Elliott and his team work with clients across the American landscape to streamline the navigation of regulatory approval processes of the Clean Water Act and the Endangered Species Act and associated state and local regulations. RES’ ecological solutions have enabled permitting and regulatory compliance for hundreds of infrastructure and commercial development projects. These efforts include road, turnpike, tollway and bridge construction, railway development projects, new manufacturing plants and plant expansions, port and intermodal facilities, oil and gas development, pipeline construction and maintenance, mining expansions, LNG terminals, as well as renewable energy, and electrical transmission and distribution and residential development.
