Advisory board

In 2013, SAK Environmental assembled a team of experienced and well respected advisors to help us grow into our second decade. Their knowledge and guidance gives SAK Environmental a broader perspective and an “outside look” on what we are doing well and where we can improve. Their guidance helps SAK to develop strategies, systems, and performance metrics that ultimately help us succeed in delivering the best possible environmental consulting and engineering services to our clients.
