ORLANDO, FL — VHB announces the addition of a new environmental team member who will elevate sustainability across markets for a broad range of clients. Chuck Smith, PWS, joins the Orlando, Florida, office as Director of Environmental Services. He will lead business development, client care, staff mentorship, and growth of the environmental practice at VHB.

Smith has advanced certifications and knowledge from the Administration Society for Professional Wetland Scientists and Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) in wetlands and airport wildlife studies. Smith brings new proficiency to the team as VHB’s first FAA Qualified Airport Wildlife Biologist. This advanced certification allows VHB to expand airport services related to specific wildlife studies and the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) documentation — providing a suite of in-house services.

Smith's extensive airport experience with clients including the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority, Titusville-Cocoa Airport Authority, and Palm Beach County Department of Airports will grow VHB’s prominence in aviation projects with complex environmental issues and water quality needs. He is skilled at both advancing multimodal NEPA documentation for federal clients such as the U.S. military and FAS, as well as navigating the Project Development and Environment process for clients including the Florida Department of Transportation.

“Chuck is a Central Florida native whose vast consulting experience on complex environmental and water quality projects make's a strong addition to VHB’s environmental practice,” said Shannon Ruby Julien, Energy Market Lead, Florida. “He understands the critical role that water quality plays in making a more sustainable and resilient Southeast.”
