Mark Heany; AlterEcho
Mark Heaney is Vice President of AlterEcho. He has more than 20 years of environmental
regulatory management experience assisting federal, state and private-sector clients. He has
managed several contracts supporting the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, overseeing
RCRA and CERCLA programs concentrated on: multi-media compliance, corrective action,
permitting, enforcement, combustion, unexploded ordnance, and facility/land restoration. He also
managed programs supporting initiatives in sustainability, Green Chemistry and chemical
alternative analyses, recycling, pollution prevention and waste analysis/minimization. Mark has
led AlterEcho partnerships with clients in organic food production, the medical and special waste
industry, non-profit homebuilding, environmental protection, manufacturing and laboratory

sustainability, supply chain management, and business performance. Mark earned a BA in
Environmental Studies and Political Science in 1989 from Colgate University and an MS in
Environmental Management in 1994 from Long Island University.
My record of extensive involvement in several NAEM activities over the last three years,
combined with my 20-plus years of leadership, corporate management and technical consulting
experience, have positioned me well to represent the interests of NAEM Affiliates Council
members as their next Vice President. I believe this experience across a wide range of
compliance, supply chain and scientific issues, while building partnerships with companies and
their EHS professionals in varied industries, will strengthen the Affiliates Council’s vital
partnership role with NAEM’s Corporate Members.
The roles of EHS professionals in member companies and among the Affiliates Council are
evolving into new disciplines and providing value in emerging areas such as sustainability, safer
product chemistry, R&D and process design. At the same time, core compliance responsibilities
are growing, while companies are faced with continued budget pressures. As providers of
innovative products, consulting services, and a wide range of information technology services,
Affiliates Council members need to address the current and future challenges corporate members
face so that we can deliver value, while also recognizing the benefits of the relationships we
build at NAEM. I envision continuing to advocate for an active voice in setting agendas for
NAEM research and events that not only address current issues, but tackle future issues, as well.
Increasing direct outreach and collaborating on joint research with corporate members and
NAEM staff can build on the progress we have been making and also better position Affiliate
Council members as forward-thinking partners. With a record of active involvement at all
NAEM events the past several years and strong relationships with NAEM staff, Corporate
Members and other Affiliates, I am eager to expand my commitment to NAEM to create
expanded value for all Affiliates Council members.
Statement of Interest
I introduced AlterEcho to NAEM and have been our lead representative at every event for the
past three years. My involvement in webinar presentations and on the 2013 Forum Planning
Committee has provided insight to valuable opportunities for AC members, as well as areas
where our role can improve. I hope you will support my goals of pursuing new areas of value for
the NAEM AC members and ensuring that NAEM’s focus continues to expand into emerging
opportunity areas for EHS professionals.
