As we enter the new year, H2M continues their vision planning for the future. George Desmarais, P.E., will be retiring from his current full-time role and moving into a part-time role at H2M; with this change, our Municipal Market will be undergoing a transition in leadership. To this end, H2M is pleased to announce that Patricia Del Col has been promoted to the position of Municipal Market Director.
Pat joined the firm in 2019 and has brought more than 30 years of experience working on municipal and private projects on Long Island, specifically in the areas of engineering, environmental protection, solid waste/recycling, and overall municipal operations, finance, and management.
Pat has brought strong experience and leadership to H2M. She began her career with the Town of Huntington in 1986 as Director of Environmental Control. She then worked for a period of time in the private sector with Covanta Energy, and was again hired by the Town in 2005 as the Director of Engineering Services. In 2010, she was appointed Deputy Town Supervisor for the Town of Huntington by then-Supervisor Frank Petrone. She also served under current Town Supervisor Chad Lupinacci to assist in transition.
Pat graduated from Long Island University with a Bachelor of Science in Biology and Environmental Science and a Master of Arts in Zoology and Cell Biology from Long Island University.
Pat’s role at H2M, working with the Deputy Municipal Market Leaders in New York and New Jersey, will be to develop new client relationships with municipal entities thereby expanding H2M’s presence in the Municipal Market.
