Jeff Hawkins founded Envirologic five years into his career in environmental consulting, at the age of 28. With the help of numerous individuals and his former partner, Jeff saw Envirologic turning a steady profit after six months of starting. It was then that he reached out to David Warwick, his former college classmate, and offered him a position with the company. Together, Jeff and David helped shape Envirologic into what it is today by continuously applying sound science with integrity and always keeping clients’ end goals in mind. This consistency, in addition to adding new talent and experience through a committed group of like-minded professionals (many of whom have made their careers at Envirologic), has contributed to over 30 years of success and satisfied customers.
With 36 years of environmental consulting experience, Jeff has developed significant expertise in all aspects of environmental services with an emphasis in brownfield redevelopment. He is an expert in layering various brownfield redevelopment tools and programs to help incentivize projects for communities, developers, and governmental agencies. Jeff leads business development at Envirologic, traveling throughout the state, and directly manages several communities and developer clients.
Jeff has a bachelor’s degree in Geology from Southern Illinois University and a master’s degree in Earth Science from Western Michigan University. Jeff frequently serves as an expert on brownfield redevelopment issues and is an instructor for the annual course on economic development offered through the Michigan Economic Developers Association. He also serves on the Michigan Geological Survey’s Advisory Council and is Chair of Western Michigan University’s Geosciences Advisory Council.
In his spare time, Jeff is a “jack of all hobbies and a master of none” — he enjoys mountain biking, paddleboarding, kayaking, gardening, fishing, and boating.
