This month PPM Consultants celebrated its 22nd anniversary with a company-wide lunch on January 22nd. The company will extend the celebration and reflection with its annual PPM Roadshow in February, where the firm’s principals will meet with PPM staff to share their vision for the upcoming year, as well as reflect on the previous year’s successes. Founding principals Todd Perry, Keith Pyron and Michael McCown agree they will be reflecting on 2015 proudly. Perry said, “No doubt we are proud of our accomplishments in 2015. These accomplishments would not be possible without our fantastic clients and outstanding team.”
PPM Consultants, Inc. was founded on January 17, 1994 to provide environmental consulting services to the petroleum marketing industry, with a primary focus on soil and groundwater contamination assessment and remediation. The company began operations with a five-person office in Monroe, LA and a one-person office in Mobile, AL. Since then, the firm has seen both geographic and revenue growth, and has diversified its environmental offerings to include air, water and waste permitting and reporting, due diligence and other services to the manufacturing, energy, commercial and government sectors. The focus of the firm, both then and now, is to provide commonsense, cost-effective environmental solutions to clients, who depend on PPM for honest answers to complex problems.
McCown states, “We’ve seen our finest year ever by focusing on our clients’ needs.” McCown is quick to acknowledge that meeting client goals on a daily basis is the only way that company milestones like reaching $23 million in revenues and growing offices have been possible. With this approach, PPM has grown to seven offices across the Southeast with a staff of over 100. Since its founding, PPM has earned repeated placement on the Inc. 500, the ENR Environmental 200, and the Zweig-White Hot Firm lists for being one of the fastest-growing environmental firms in the nation.
PPM looks to 2016 with goals to exceed $25 million in revenue, extend its service area and acquire firms whose services will provide expanded geographic coverage and synergy with PPM’s existing offerings.
The PPM team looks forward to many more great years ahead. Pyron adds, “It has been a truly great and satisfying experience to have been in business the last 22 years with this group.”
