Granger is pleased to announce several staff changes in its Energy Services division. These changes are being made in order to more effectively manage operations in light of recent growth in the division.
Jim Grant, P.E., who previously served as director of engineering and operations support, is moving to a new role as a director of operations. In his new position, Jim will oversee plant operations, production and staff for four facilities in Michigan, one in Utah and one in Indiana.
Marc Pauley will move from director of operations to the newly created position of commodities manager. In his new role, Marc will be responsible for renewable energy portfolio standards, certificates and attributes, as well as commodity negotiations and sales.
Luke Smith, P.E., manager of construction and engineering, will assume some new responsibilities. His new duties will include planning, design, construction and operational support for Granger’s landfill gas utilization projects, as well as management of staff for these projects.
Patrick Triscari recently joined Granger as project manager. In this role, he is responsible for all aspects of project management, including engineering, construction management, quality control and budgeting for capital improvements and special projects throughout Granger’s existing energy facilities.
“As we continue to grow, Granger Energy Services will benefit from the skills and expertise these engineers bring to the table. I look forward to their continued commitment to service, excellence and professionalism in their new roles,” said Chief Operating Officer of Energy Services Joel Zylstra.
Granger collects tomorrow’s energy. A family-owned waste collection company headquartered in Lansing, Mich., Granger provides waste hauling, disposal and recycling services and produces renewable energy from landfill gas.
A developer of renewable energy projects since 1985 and a landfill owner and operator for nearly 40 years, Granger has gained national recognition for its landfill gas-to-energy projects from leaders in the field, state agencies and the U.S. EPA. Granger has successfully developed landfill gas projects in Alabama, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Utah and currently produces enough renewable energy to power approximately 38,000 homes.
