Woodard & Curran was founded in 1979 by Frank Woodard, PhD, PE, and Al Curran, PE. An ideal team combining a passion for technical solutions and an intuitive sense of “the business of the business,” Frank and Al built a firm that has grown to more than 800 employees at offices throughout the eastern U.S. and at plant facilities nationwide.
Woodard & Curran was founded with a simple business concept: if we provide an enjoyable place to work with opportunity, integrity and commitment, we will attract talented people who thrive and excel at their work. It happened. At the heart of our company are talented people whose commitment and integrity drive results. Our clients experience this power every day in our actions, our solutions, and our promises kept.
The firm’s growth over nearly three decades has been the result of responding to the needs of the marketplace. Beginning with challenges driven by Clean Water Act requirements, to the onset of CERCLA and RCRA, to the availability of funds to transform brownfield properties, to environmental health and safety regulations, and more recently, the focus on sustainable design and corporate responsibility, Woodard & Curran has anticipated needs and expanded our base of expertise accordingly. Whether helping clients meet demands mandated by regulations, or providing assistance rooted in greater control of their assets and budgets, we have grown to be responsive to our clients’ needs.
Today the firm is led by CEO Doug McKeown and President Guy Vaillancourt.
