FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Julie Bryant selected to co-lead Cascadia Consulting Group’s Oakland, CA office
OAKLAND, CA (July 26, 2018) – Cascadia Consulting Group, Inc., a majority women-owned environmental consulting firm, is pleased to announce that Julie Bryant has been selected as Co-Director of its Oakland, CA office. Bryant will join fellow Co-Director, Julia Chang Frank, who was hired last fall. Together, the women bring more than 35 years of senior-level government and corporate experience to Cascadia.
Bryant will jointly oversee Cascadia’s delivery of client services, including zero waste and sustainability planning, technical assistance, and policy and planning. Prior to joining Cascadia, she served as Zero Waste Senior Coordinator for the City and County of San Francisco Department of the Environment, managing activities related to landfill diversion, green purchasing, and policy development and advocacy. Her recycling and composting system improvements there resulted in 80,000 tons of waste diverted from landfill disposal, resulting in a savings of more than $4 million, and $500,000 in new revenue streams for the city. In 2016, Bryant was awarded the prestigious Waste360 40 Under 40 award.
As a women-owned company led by two Co-Presidents, job-sharing at the highest level is not new to Cascadia. Equity in influence extends to all employees and is integral to the company’s mission to inspire and empower communities everywhere to protect and restore our world.
"Julie's ability to lead technical assistance programs, analyze policy, and drive innovation will further expand our vision to create lasting change in the communities we serve,” said Cascadia Co-President Amity Lumper. “Couple that with Julia’s coalition building experience and shared environmental expertise, and they make a powerful duo.”
“Cascadia has an excellent reputation for quality,” said Bryant. “I’m proud to be joining a team that never stops innovating and raising the bar on environmental stewardship.”
