Apex Companies Promotes Jay Borkland to Director of National Waterways and Alternative Energy Services
Seasoned Professional Kelly Hurstak Named Boston's Division Manager
ROCKVILLE, MD (MMD Newswire) August 1, 2012 -- Apex Companies, LLC - a leading national energy, water resources and environmental consulting and engineering firm - has named Jay Borkland its Director of National Waterways and Alternative Energy Services.
In the newly created role, Borkland will be responsible for expanding Apex's waterways, ports and harbors services nationally, while continuing to support and develop similar practices he previously supervised as Boston's Division Manager. In order to enhance Apex's position as a leader in the new energy marketplace, Borkland will rely on his more than 30 years of field experience to grow the company's alternative energy services nation-wide, including those related to the promising offshore wind and ocean energy business sector.
"Jay has been instrumental in advancing our waterways and alternative energy business units for more than a decade in the northeast," says Robert Brackett, Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of Apex. "Both industry segments are emerging and natural service extensions for Apex to pursue across the country."
To fill the position vacated by Borkland, Kelly Hurstak has been hired as Boston's new Division Manager. A versatile professional with expertise in a variety of specialties, Kelly's primary focus will be facilitating Apex's business growth and employee development in the region.
Hurstak brings more than 20 years of environmental services experience, most recently as Branch Manager for Environmental Compliance Services, Inc. (ECS). Prior to that Hurstak served as an Environmental Analyst for Groundwater Consultants, Inc. and cofounded Mykrowaters, Inc., a full-service environmental consulting firm based in Concord, MA.
Apex is focused on minimizing environmental liabilities and hurdles to maximize client's business opportunities. Recently named a Top 500 Design Firm by Engineering News-Record Magazine (ENR Magazine), Apex acquired TITAN Engineering, Inc. (Dallas, TX) and Ash Creek Associates, Inc. (Portland, OR) in 2011, privately held environmental and engineering services firms. The company's prominent M&A efforts have expanded the company's presence in Texas and various west coast markets, as well as enhanced oil and gas, and water related services throughout the country.
