GeoInsight, Inc., a New England-based firm providing strategy in environmental, engineering, water resource and environmental health and safety services, announced it has named Nikki Delude Roy as vice president (VP).
"GeoInsight is a group of technically excellent professionals. I am thrilled at the opportunity to combine my technical expertise, local network and organizational leadership experience to continue driving strategic growth at GeoInsight,” said Roy in a statement. “The culture of the firm—which combines strategic and technical thinking with genuine commitment to personal service—is a great fit for me, and I am excited to help grow and lead this team."
"Nikki truly embodies our philosophy. I am looking forward to seeing her leadership bring GeoInsight to new heights," said GeoInsight President Brian Kisiel in a statement.
With 15-plus years of technical and leadership experience, Roy is recognized in New England and beyond for her strategic approach to complex environmental challenges, according to GeoInsight. Her consulting expertise has focused on site assessment and remediation projects throughout the U.S. for transportation, manufacturing and waste sector clients. Prior to joining GeoInsight, Roy served Golder Associates as a senior consultant and New England and New York group leader.
Over the past few years, Roy has become an industry thought leader through her work with emerging contaminants, including per- and poly-fluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), and her efforts to keep abreast of the evolving regulatory scene. In addition to being involved in the regulatory, legal and strategic components of several large projects where emerging contaminants were identified as chemicals of concern, Roy has provided technical support to the New Hampshire Business and Industry Association (NH BIA) during the state’s development of PFAS legislation, where she received NH BIA's 2018 Above and Beyond Award.
Roy regularly presents at local and national conferences on issues associated with emerging contaminants and co-authored a national article for the American Bar Association.
"Nikki regularly shares valuable, technical expertise with her colleagues on BIA's Manufacturing & End Users Policy Committee,” said Jim Roche of NH BIA in a statement. “She was particularly helpful to us as we navigated public policy challenges surrounding regulation of emerging contaminants like PFAS. GeoInsight is gaining a knowledgeable, articulate and approachable asset in Nikki. We look forward to her continued contributions to BIA."
