Freese and Nichols Adds Phillip Todd to Strengthen Ecosystem Restoration Expertise

Freese and Nichols has added Phillip Todd to our environmental team, expanding our ability to assist communities with specialized stream, wetland and coastal restoration projects.

Phillip brings his extensive experience and knowledge of ecological, mitigation, engineering and construction services to our growing fluvial ecosystem restoration (FER) team.

FER involves the practice of renewing and restoring degraded, damaged or destroyed ecosystems and habitats in rivers and streams to enhance the environment, improve water quality and reduce stormwater damage.

Phillip’s expertise includes almost 12 years of construction oversight for mitigation and restoration projects. He also has a comprehensive understanding of federal environmental law, including NEPA and the Clean Water Act, along with mitigation site assessments and Natural Channel design.

“Phillip has been a leader in FER almost from the beginning of its development and has built strong rapport with community leaders as they plan and complete environmental improvements,” said Bryan Dick, Freese and Nichols’ FER/Environmental Group Manager in North Carolina.

“FER work involves specialists from several different fields of study, including environmental science, stormwater and coastal engineering, geology, geomorphology and hydrology, and Phillip can bring them all together.”

As a senior project manager based in Raleigh, North Carolina, Phillip will work with our teams across the Southeast United States. He’s a frequent presenter on environmental resilience, restoration and protecting natural resources.

Phillip received his Master of Public Administration and Bachelor of Science in Biology from North Carolina State University.
