This month PPM Consultants is celebrating our 25th anniversary in business. The celebration will continue throughout the year in appreciation of our wonderful clients and exceptional team. The company will also celebrate its silver anniversary during 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 2018 proudly. Perry said, “2018 was a truly special year, with incredible record breaking growth across all measurable indices. These accomplishments would not be possible without our fantastic clients and outstanding team.”
PPM 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 common sense, 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 $27 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 2019 with goals to exceed $30 million in revenue, extend its service area and acquire firms whose services will provided 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 25 years with our team.”
