our history: 

RMEC was founded by four partners as Rocky Mountain Environmental Consultants, an L.L.C. in May of 2001. At the time of RMEC’s inception, three of the founding partners Frank DeRosso, Dr. Dean Lillquist and Dr. Dale Stephenson were full time faculty at the University of Utah’s Rocky Mountain Center for Occupational and Environmental Health (RMCOEH) and the fourth founding partner was Daryl Hancock who had formerly served as the Environmental Manager for the I-15 Reconstruction Project in Salt Lake City, Utah. RMEC began with a handful of private and public sector clients throughout the Salt Lake Valley and intermountain west region. Mr. Hancock was dedicated full-time to RMEC as the other partners maintained their faculty positions at the RMCOEH, contributing to RMEC on a part-time basis. In June of 2003, due to the high growth and demands at RMEC, Mr. DeRosso resigned his full-time faculty position at the RMCOEH and began working full-time for RMEC. In 2004, Dr. Lillquist accepted a position with OSHA as the Director of the Salt Lake City Technical Center and Dr. Stephenson accepted a position as the Director of the Environmental Health Program at Boise State University. Due to conflicts of interests associated with these new positions, Dr. Lillquist and Dr. Stephenson were bought out of their interests in RMEC in December of 2004. With the buyout of these founding partners, Rocky Mountain Environmental Consultants, L.L.C. converted to an S-corporation and changed its name to RMEC Environmental, Inc., while retaining the legal name of Rocky Mountain Environmental Consultants for doing business in the state of Utah.
