BL CEO Dan French Joins National Environmental Justice Advisory Council Superfund Working Group
BL CEO joins national reevaluation of the Superfund program and the search for opportunities to improve it for the next generation.
BrownfieldListings.com, the national real estate redevelopment marketplace and project platform, is proud to announce that co-founder and CEO Dan French recently accepted an invitation to join the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Superfund Working Group of the National Environmental Justice Advisory Council (NEJAC). Under the Trump Administration, the National Priorities List (also known as Superfund) has received renewed focus, including the commissioning of a robust Superfund Task Force to develop recommendations to improve the enormously important cleanup program tasked to remediate, make safe and revitalize the nation’s most challenging sites.
As a part of a larger effort, the NEJAC working group was created to deliver specific recommendations to the EPA Administrator to improve the efficacy and effectiveness, with particular focus on how to advance community revitalization through remediation and reuse of Superfund sites.
“It’s a privilege to be able to contribute my time and perspective to this priority effort to reevaluate one of our nation’s most important programs,” French said. “Having the opportunity to collaborate with so many knowledgeable professionals who are so passionate about redevelopment and revitalization has renewed my hope that our most difficult sites can be converted from eyesores, and worse, into community assets.”
Mr. French’s work has already begun, with numerous calls, meetings and activities already this year ahead of in person working sessions taking place in Washington DC later that begin at the end of April and continue throughout the summer.
On the front lines of epochal evolutionary change in real estate as co-founder and CEO of BrownfieldListings.com, Dan’s unique caliber of cutting insight is a powerful orienting force capable of clearing the fog of current events and distilling trend lines and headlines into meaningful, actionable takeaways. Every day, Mr. French’s robust perspective and dynamic leadership is re-calibrating strategic development and decision-making at the highest levels. His passion is infectious and he is highly sought to reinvigorate strategic- and project-level thinking throughout leading firms, institutions and governments around the world.
Often building from the boutique thoughtwork produced in the BL Lab, Dan delivers fresh, cutting insights capable of inspiring audiences at all levels to their feet from C-Suites to stadium seats.
