LINCOLN, NE — Brian Osborn has been appointed Environmental Practice Leader at Olsson, an engineering and design firm. Osborn had been overseeing the firm’s Nebraska-based Environmental and Water Resources teams.

As Environmental Practice Leader, Osborn is charged with supporting the firm’s growth strategy by expanding opportunities and developing technical expertise and project management capabilities within Olsson’s environmental discipline.

“Brian has a deep understanding of our operations and is the perfect person to lead our Environmental practice,” said John Olsson, Executive Vice President of Consulting Services at Olsson. “Our practice is well positioned for growth and is gaining momentum with several recent project wins. We expect Brian to build on that momentum and position Olsson for future expansion and growth.”

Osborn succeeds Tom Furgason, who is retiring at the end of June.

Osborn brings to his new role a wide range of environmental experience, including National Environmental Policy Act documentation, wetlands delineations and permitting, natural resources assessments, hazardous and regulated materials/waste investigations, and environmental remediation. He has been with the firm since 2012 and has led the environmental team in Nebraska for more than five years.
