Rincon Consultants, Inc. Marks 30 Years of Environmental Consulting Excellence

A Message from our President and CEO:


As the President and CEO of Rincon Consultants, Inc., headquartered in Ventura, California, I am proud to announce the commemoration of three decades of delivering exceptional environmental consulting services. Founded in 1994 by a group of five scientists and planners, our firm was established with a vision to integrate environmental expertise with problem-solving capabilities, and a shared commitment to making a difference in our local communities and California as a whole.

As we mark our 30-year anniversary, it is a moment of reflection, gratitude, and celebration. What began as a humble endeavor rooted in a desire to do better has blossomed into a firmly established institution of over 450 talented individuals, known for our dedication to excellence. Over the past three decades, we have prioritized the client experience above all else, setting a standard of service that continues to define us to this day. 

Our principles of integrity, excellence, and innovative thinking have remained constant throughout our journey. We have collaborated with a diverse array of clients, navigating regulatory landscapes, mitigating environmental risks, and achieving both environmentally and financially sustainable outcomes across nearly every market. From environmental impact assessments and remediation strategies to long-range planning and regulatory compliance, we have consistently delivered innovative solutions tailored to meet the unique needs of our clients. 

Beyond our professional endeavors, we have actively contributed to the communities we serve through partnering with like-minded organizations, supporting Diverse Business Enterprises, and facilitating and supporting staff volunteer opportunities. Notably, in 2022 we established the Rincon Environment and Climate Heroes (REACH) Scholarship fund, as part of our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion initiative aimed at improving diversification within the industry. The REACH Scholarship offers financial support and mentorship to students passionate about environmental science, sustainability, and planning. 

Reflecting on our company’s journey, our belief has been unwavering: we can always improve, and that focus has remained steadfast on delivering exceptional client experiences. As we mark this milestone, we reiterate our dedication to our core values of trust, fairness, transparency, accountability, discipline, and entrepreneurship. We strive to be not just a service provider, but a trusted and invested partner. Moving forward, we remain committed to pushing the boundaries of what is possible, consistently exceeding expectations, and leading by example. 

Thank you for being part of our journey. Here is to the next 30 years of innovation, collaboration, and meaningful progress. 

John F. Dreher, Jr.
