as Next President
and Chief Executive Officer
John Dreher has been elected by Rincon’s Board of Directors as the next President and CEO, effective July 1, 2019. In his role as Chief Operating Officer John has been working side-by-side with Michael P. Gialketsis (President and CEO since 2012) to ensure this smooth transition as Mike steps into a Strategic Advisor role within the company.
John started with Rincon in 2002 as a Regulatory Permitting Specialist to support a growing environmental compliance and regulatory permitting service line. Over the years, John played an integral role in developing many long-term client relationships that helped Rincon diversify its clients and services, including public agencies, utlity, renewable energy and transportation infrastructure clients, and strategically partnering with other environmental, engineering and design firms. He pursued his interest in driving the business and played a significant role in business planning efforts over the last decade, which led to him to becoming COO in 2014. John has pushed to evolve Rincon’s foundation by building a strong and nimble platform to allow our professionals to perform at a high level to lead the environmental consulting industry. His vision that Rincon is never quite “there” and that there is always opportunity to improve helps Rincon provide client services that consistently exceed expectation.
“This is an exciting transition of leadership for the firm, and through John’s evolution and growth at Rincon, I am confident that his leadership, with the support of all members of the Rincon team, will continue our vision of achieving a powerful healthy culture and leading professional excellence.”- Michael P. Gialketsis
