Louisville, KY, March 10, 2020 – Protect Environmental announced today the addition of Chris Bonniwell, Ph.D. as Director of Products. Dr. Bonniwell joins Protect Environmental after approximately 10 years in the environmental consulting industry in Indiana and Wisconsin, which were preceded by four years as an environmental regulator at the Indiana Department of Environmental Management and seven years managing an industrial manufacturing company in Wisconsin.
