There are some changes within a national company with Vernon roots.

Associated Engineering has named Brian Guy as national practice leader, environmental science, and Brent Phillips as general manager of Vernon’s Summit Environmental Consultant, a member of the Associated Engineering group.

In this new role, Guy will promote the growth of Associated’s environmental practice across the country. He will also provide support and leadership in climate change mitigation and adaptation to staff and clients across the company.

“I’m excited about the opportunity to work with our clients and staff across the company, and, in particular, to bring our experience in climate change to help our clients understand the risks and protect their infrastructure from extreme weather events,” said Guy.

As general manager, Phillips takes over the leadership of Summit Environmental from Guy, who has led the company since its inception in 1994.

“Through thoughtful leadership and service excellence, Brian has built a successful and strong business,” said Phillips.

“I look forward to working with Brian and our team to continue to build and grow our company.”

Since the founding of the company, Summit has grown to more than 80 staff in eight offices across Canada. In 2010, Summit became a member of Associated Engineering.
