HOLLYWOOD, FL -- (Marketwired) -- 04/16/15 --
NV5 Holdings, Inc. (the "Company") (NASDAQ: NVEE), a provider of professional and technical engineering and consulting solutions, announced today that Senior Vice President and co-founder of recent NV5 acquisition AK Environmental, Amy Gonzales, has been named Business Development Director of Environmental Services. In her broadened role, Ms. Gonzales will report directly to Ernesto Aguilar, COO of Infrastructure, and will continue to aggressively pursue cross-selling opportunities between NV5's environmental services vertical and the Company's other principal business lines: infrastructure, energy services, construction quality assurance, and program management. In addition, Ms. Gonzales will be responsible for garnering new business opportunities within the environmental services sector for NV5 nationwide, allowing her to make full-time use of the client relationships and expertise she has amassed over her 30-year career as an entrepreneur, wetland scientist and sediment controls specialist.
In conjunction with Ms. Gonzales's expanded role, Scott Flickinger and Ed Gonzales will be responsible for growing the Inspection and Project Management practices within NV5's energy infrastructure group.
"We have already set the groundwork to bring more opportunities to NV5 in the environmental services vertical and to expand our capacity for self-performed environmental work," said Amy Gonzales. "The strong working partnerships that have formed between our professionals in the infrastructure and environmental services verticals have resulted in roughly $4 million in contracts in the last year with clients like Kinder Morgan, Xcel, Enable, NiSource and others, and I believe we can accomplish so much more."
"The key to Amy's new role will be continuing to minimize the extent to which we outsource or subcontract environmental work, and to communicate to new and existing clients that NV5 offers a full-scale multidisciplinary environmental practice that complements the design, surveying, and construction management work we are performing all over the United States," said Ernesto Aguilar, PE, COO of Infrastructure. "I believe Amy can do this better than anyone and I am looking forward to working with her in the future."
