JOE WILLIAMS is an Assistant Director of Markets at EIP, where he enjoys developing relationships with environmental consultants, mitigation users, and regulators from around the country. He’s grateful EIP’s talented team and partners consistently deliver high-quality environmental restoration in which his clients and regulators can have confidence.
Joe balances essential development projects with these high-quality results. One highlight was providing a mitigation solution for a new county road that was decades in development and will provide needed community growth and increased emergency evacuation capacity. Before coming to EIP in 2016, Joe was Director of Operations for another nationwide mitigation banking company. He also served as a Peace Corps volunteer in Malawi, the warm heart of Africa.
Joe lives in Maryland with his wife and daughter, with whom he is always looking forward to a new adventure. Joe holds a BA in Integrated Science and Technology from James Madison University. He also holds a Master of Environmental Management and a Master of Forestry from the Nicholas School of the Environment, as well as a Certificate in International Development Policy from the Terry Sanford Institute of Public Policy, at Duke University.
Q&A with Joe
Tell us about your role at EIP. What do you do?
I operate at the nexus of economics, the environment, and optimal societal outcomes. I build relationships with, and provide environmental restoration solutions to, consultants, users, and regulators. I work with other mitigation bankers to promote and improve the industry, and collaborate with other professional and industry associations to achieve mutual goals.
What excites you about EIP’s impact in the world?
EIP has tremendous ability to meaningfully change the world through regionally significant, large-scale restoration. EIP has amazing talent, expansive vision, and intrinsic flexibility. The best thing about EIP though, is the heart of its people — both staff and partners. EIP wants to build a better world the right way.
