Ryan Wymore is an award-winning environmental remediation expert and has been a forward-thinking fixture in the industry for more than a decade. Always working to stay ahead of trends, Ryan has applied his in-depth knowledge of innovative technologies to project sites contaminated with chlorinated solvents, dense non-aqueous phase liquids (DNAPLs) and—for a project in Vietnam—Agent Orange. He has served a variety of roles including project manager, lead engineer and advisor for the Department of Energy, Air Force, Navy, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Environmental Protection Agency, as well as many additional municipal and industrial clients. His work characterizing DNAPLs has earned him leadership positions within industry-leading groups like the Interstate Technology and Regulatory Council (ITRC) and the Battelle International Symposium on Bioremediation and Sustainable Environmental Technologies. His experience in the lab and at high-profile project sites allows him to train thousands of stakeholders worldwide on cutting-edge technologies like in-situ bioremediation, chemical reduction, biogeochemical transformation and chemical oxidation.
What is your favorite part of your job? Its diversity, and the fact that the projects I work on require expertise from many different disciplines—engineers, geologists, environmental scientists, GIS and CADD experts, project managers, client service leaders, etc.—all working together toward common goals.
Excellence is something I always strive for in my professional and personal life. If something is worth doing, it's worth doing well.
