ARCADIS, an international engineering and management services company, reported that it has merged with Malcolm Pirnie, an environmental engineering firm headquartered in White Plains, New York. The hundred year old Malcolm Pirnie, active in water and environmental consulting and engineering, will be the jewel in the crown for ARCADIS, which has mushroomed world-wide to over 13,500 employees. Malcolm Pirnie's assets extend beyond what the company last reported on its balance sheet. With over forty years of professional experience, Senior VP Dick Brownell, a veteran problem solver, provides expert engineering services to Malcolm Pirnie clients for hazardous waste and petroleum materials management, industrial wastewater systems, and air pollution control. Jerry Cavaluzzi, Malcolm Pirnie's General Counsel, is a highly talented lawyer who is well-regarded not only within the company, but in the legal community as well. Jerry is frequently tapped to speak at forums on cutting edge environmental and insurance issues hosted by Westchester/Southern Connecticut Chapter of the Association for Corporate Counsel (WESFACCA); the New York State Bar Association, the American Law Institute, and the ABA. We wish both Dick and Jerry continued success within ARCADIS.
