Environmental Scientist Tim Vermillion Joins Freese and Nichols in Oklahoma City
Tim Vermillion has joined Freese and Nichols as a senior environmental scientist and project manager in Oklahoma City. Tim's longstanding relationships with public officials and extensive experience will enhance our environmental services capabilities for our regional partners.
“As new opportunities emerge for our firm to be involved with environmental projects for cities, counties and agencies throughout Oklahoma, it’s important our team is equipped with regional familiarity and a clear understanding of our clients’ internal processes,” Oklahoma Division Manager Tricia Hatley said. “Tim has acquired deep knowledge in both areas through his wide range of work on roadway and water infrastructure projects. He will be a great addition to the firm.”
Tim's initial project with Freese and Nichols will be providing environmental consulting services for all three airports in Oklahoma City: Will Rogers World Airport, Wiley Post Airport and Clarence E. Page Airport.
Throughout his career, Tim has built a reputation among many cities and counties for his knowledge and success working on a variety of agricultural, transportation and irrigation system projects. Focused on biological studies, trees surveys and permitting compliance, he has spent much of his career working for public organizations, including the Oklahoma Department of Transportation, the City of Norman and the United States Army.
While in the Army, Tim served as a logistics/supply non-commissioned officer for the 145th Army Band in Oklahoma City for five years and was deployed for a year to Afghanistan. There, he served as an international agribusiness forester with the Army 1-45th Agribusiness Development Team, and he was awarded an Operation Enduring Freedom Bronze Star.
Tim earned a bachelor’s degree in agriculture science and natural resources-forestry and a master’s degree in international agriculture, both from Oklahoma State University in Stillwater.
