GEI Vice President Cameron Davis will be a panelist on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C., on June 6 about the White House’s proposed FY18 budget.

Since starting with GEI in February, Davis has begun a Government Affairs practice to assist corporate and other clients with leveraging federal funds to complement cleanup and restoration efforts. “With GEI’s strength in the water resources practice and the Great Lakes/Upper Midwest such a water rich region, this is a win-win for GEI’s clients,” Davis said.
