Name: Terry Hubbard, CPESC
Title: President
Job Description: Living The Dream

Terry's Story: Terry started Peak Environmental Concepts in 1997 at 22 years old. His degree in environmental science and his annual summer landscaping job were the building blocks that propelled him to start this new venture. At that time Terry had one focus, "How do I get a serious summer job that will allow me to ski all winter?" Peak Environmental was the answer. While the demands of a growing business no longer allow the ski bum lifestyle, Terry still gets a few days off during the winter to ski. He also enjoys spending time with his three boys. He is green industry professional and he has built a culture of learning, excellence and integrity at Peak Environmental.
