For Immediate Publication -
Springfield, VA & San Luis Obispo, CA - October 13, 2021 - Wildnote, a mobile field data collection app with a web-based data management and reporting platform that supports wetland professionals, announced today the appointment of Dr. Mark Sudol, owner, and executive of Sudol Environmental Associates, to its advisory board, effective immediately.
With over 20 years working with the Corps wetland permitting program, Dr. Mark Sudol brings technical expertise and personal experience with a wide variety of wetland and stream habitats. In addition, he has consulted privately with landowners and developers, giving him a comprehensive knowledge of the permit process.
"Dr. Sudol brings a distinguished level of expertise to Wildnote and will play an essential role in expanding our partnerships with forward-thinking and industry-leading environmental consulting firms, as well as environmental regulatory bodies. He will be a tremendous asset for Wildnote as we continue the work of providing the leading environmental compliance platform to help consulting firms become more efficient, profitable and competitive." - Kristen Hazard, Wildnote CEO
According to a recent article in The Chief Executive, "Since 2010, the time needed to hurdle regulatory, approval and permitting times have increased roughly 25 percent. Delay increases cost, congestion, pollution, and needless economic inefficiencies." As a result, wetland permitting is expected to be a significant bottleneck to the start of new infrastructure projects. This relationship with Dr. Sudol will increase Wildnote's ability to meet the needs of the wetland industry and its regulators, accelerating the evaluation, regulatory, and permitting processes.
"I've been impressed with Wildnote's approach to providing technology to wetland professionals, as well as their long-term vision for using technology to help accelerate the wetland regulatory process. Their strategic vision to accurately collect and analyze data to improve environmental protection and restoration directly aligns with mine and I look forward to providing my expertise to help us realize our shared vision." - Dr. Sudol, Sudol Environmental Associates CEO
