Focused leadership to expand and diversify existing operations
ECT announces the hiring of James “JT” Marine as Senior Operations Manager and the Practice Lead for the firm’s growing and expanding cultural resources management team. As a registered professional archaeologist (RPA) and an accredited geomorphologist, JT brings diverse expertise, strategies, and market knowledge to the firm’s clients and staff.
“JT will continue to expand and grow our cultural resource management practice on behalf of our clients and project teams,” said Managing Director Tom Stanko. “In addition to his unique, individual capabilities around geomorphology and geoarchaeology, JT will provide leadership to the broader team of archaeologists, architectural historians, and niche specialists.”
Based in Pennsylvania, JT has consulted clients in the public and private sector, including experience with federal agencies, power & energy, oil & gas, and transportation clients. His recent experience includes building interdisciplinary permitting teams that provide solutions to midstream and exploration firms active in the Marcellus and Utica shale plays in the Appalachian Basin.
As a professional, he has served as a principal investigator and geomorphologist on transmission, midstream, Department of Transportation, and land acquisition efforts nationally with a concentration in the Eastern US. He has nearly 35 years of experience with a BS in Business Management and a MS in Geology from the University of Pittsburgh, where he specialized in geoarchaeology, geomorphology, and sedimentology. He is a RPA and a member of the Pennsylvania Archaeological Council.
JT joins ECT’s existing cultural resources practice consisting of more than 25 full-time employees and on-call specialists working nationally, often in conjunction with the firm’s sizeable natural resource division and growing power generation, power delivery, and transportation markets.
