Kyle Hoylman Elected to Chair Kentucky Board of Radon Safety

An advocate against radon-induced cancer, Hoylman brings nearly two decades of experience to new role

Louisville, KY, October 13,2020 – Kyle Hoylman, CEO of Protect Environmental, was elected to chair the newly formed Kentucky Board of Radon Safety during its inaugural meeting. The board is attached to the Department of Professional Licensing in the Public Protection Cabinet, and is responsible for promoting the control of radon and the regulation of measurement, mitigation, and analytical lab activities in Kentucky.

“Kentucky leads our nation in both lung cancer incidence and mortality, and radon is one of the main reasons for this sobering statistic,” says Hoylman. “I look forward to working with my fellow board members to address the radon problem in our state.”

Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers nationwide, second overall only to smoking. In some areas of Kentucky, more than 65% of all buildings contain unsafe levels of radioactive, cancer-causing radon gas. According to the most recent Radon Report Card published by the American Association of Radon Scientists and Technologists, radon-induced lung cancer is attributable to more than 1,000 incidents in Kentucky each year.

Kyle also chairs the standards committee developing ANSI standards for radon measurement and mitigation, serves as president of the American Association of Radon Scientists and Technologists (AARST), and is president of the Kentucky Association of Radon Professional (KARP).

Protect Environmental Completes Acquisition of Reliant Radon Solutions

Acquisition amplifies Protect Environmental’s national footprint by expanding capacity in metropolitan Denver and throughout Colorado​

Louisville, KY, October 11, 2022 – Louisville-based Protect Environmental, a national leader in the environmental consulting and construction industry, with a focus on radon and chemical vapor intrusion management, today announced its acquisition of Reliant Radon Solutions. After acquiring Denver-based ACE Radon earlier this year, the company is continuing to expand its capacity to serve Colorado and the western United States.

Founded in 2003, Reliant Radon Solutions has focused on building trust with residential and commercial customers seeking radon testing, mitigation, and monitoring in Colorado and throughout the western region of the country. Terry Kerwin, owner of Reliant Radon Solutions, says of the acquisition, “Over the years we’ve been committed to our community through providing education and quality services, and I’m honored to join the Protect Environmental family to continue this commitment in the communities we serve.”

Coupled with the acquisition of ACE Radon, the expanded operation is the largest, most experienced soil gas contractor in the state of Colorado. “Reliant Radon Solutions has always been a strong competitor in the market, which is why we are excited to join forces to amplify our ability to serve the Denver area and beyond,” said Jeff Goard, Colorado Managing Partner for Protect Environmental.

As part of the acquisition, Kerwin will transition to a national role within the company, leading its market development team and supporting its national accounts team. “We are excited to welcome Reliant Radon Solutions to Protect Environmental’s growing family, particularly given the alignment with our core values and vision,” said Kyle Hoylman, CEO of Protect Environmental. “I look forward to working with Terry on the national level to assist our clients with building and maintaining healthy, safe, and sustainable indoor environments in the communities where we live, work, and learn.”
