PM Environmental Inc. in Lansing has promoted Beth Sexton to COO and Patricia Perry to CFO. Sexton and Perry are the first to fill the new executive roles at the company.

“This is truly an exciting time for PM Environmental, and we have chartered a continued path for hiring from within, creating an ability for all of our staff to grow their careers,” says Michael Kulka, founder and CEO.

Sexton has been with PM for more than 15 years and previously managed all aspects of the company’s 3,000-4,000 annual transactional due diligence projects as the national manager for due diligence services. She has served clients including financial institutions and borrowers, retail chains, industrial conglomerates, and real estate developers. In her new role, Sexton will focus on operations, best-management practices across departments, and strategic planning initiatives.

“I am excited to take on this new role and help PM to continue to grow in its target marketplace for years to come,” says Sexton.

Perry has been with the company for five years and previously spent 20 years as a financial executive for a national consulting firm, working out of PM’s mid-south region. In her prior role as controller, she oversaw all aspects of cost accounting, including analyzing cost records, and monitored and maintained PM’s general ledger accounts. As CFO, Perry will oversee the company’s long- and short-term strategic planning and manage and report on company financials and risk.

“I look forward to working closely with Beth Sexton in our new roles, and on matters that relate to budget management, cost benefits, and steering the firm into the future,” says Perry.

PM Environmental was founded in 1992 and has seen rapid development in the last five years, with a current year-to-date growth of 22 percent.

Adam Patton, national manager of site investigation services, will take on additional duties in his current role. He has managed hundreds of Phase II Environmental Site Assessments and multiple United States Environmental Protection Agency Site Assessments for municipal, commercial, and industrial clients; developers; governmental agencies; retailers; and corporations. His expanded responsibilities will include the continuous improvement of technical processes and operations across PM, as well as the identification of the next generation of leadership in the departments he oversees.

“From assessing emerging contaminants to staying ahead of evolving standards and implementing more efficient sampling or remediation techniques, it’s about focusing our team forward to ensure that PM is always able to service the client’s specific needs,” says Patton.
