New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection Commissioner Bob Martin will give an environmental update to the Morris County Chamber of Commerce at an event scheduled for June 23 in Hanover Township.
Martin, who is serving his eighth year as commissioner, will speak on key environmental issues facing the state and region, and will take some questions from the audience during the forum, which is being held at the Birchwood Manor.
Commissioner Martin has been leading the Department of Environmental Protection since January 2010, when he was named by Governor Chris Christie to the post. Committed to the protection of New Jersey’s air, water, land and natural and historic resources, Commissioner Martin has transformed DEP into a more efficient and customer service-oriented agency.
By undertaking regulatory reform, expanding the use of technology, and implementing department-wide customer service training, the commissioner contends that the DEP is more effectively meeting its environmental mission while also helping to promote a stronger New Jersey economy.
An accomplished business and industry leader with recognized expertise in energy and utilities, in 2008 Commissioner Martin retired as a partner with over 25 years of experience at Accenture LLP, the world’s largest business and technology consulting firm.
Born and raised in Massachusetts, Commissioner Martin earned a B.A. in Economics and Sociology from Boston College and an MBA from The George Washington University.
