Our Senior Management Team
James Nash
President and Founder

Jim's 44 years of experience in environmental remediation, wastewater treatment, applied physics and analytical testing have provided him with in-depth management know-how in private and federal government settings. He has a keen understanding of remediation system operations, maintenance and evaluation, with years of hands-on experience. Jim has managed the startup and/or operation of numerous waste treatment operations for groundwater and industrial process water, as well as landfill gas collection and flare systems. He has successfully implemented Chapman's asset management system, which allows field operators to interface with the database while keeping all data centralized, manageable, auditable and safe. Prior to founding Chapman, Jim worked in the chemical industry as a laboratory supervisor in analytical and end-product testing. His zest for more hands-on field work led him to apply his knowledge of instrumentation, testing and evaluation to spill response and remediation equipment at the EPA's Oil and Hazardous Materials Test Tank (OHMSETT) at Naval Weapon Station Earle, and then at the EPA/ERT's Response Engineering Analytical Contract (REAC), where he was the Engineering Group Leader.
