It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that we share the news that one of STI’s Founders, Don Blumenthal, passed away on February 14, 2017, after a courageous battle with cancer. Don, along with co-founders Jerry Anderson, Willard Richards, and Sandy MacDonald, started STI in May 1982, 35 years ago this year.
Under Don’s leadership, STI has become a successful employee-owned consulting firm that delivers innovative science- and technology-based solutions for clients’ environmental challenges worldwide. Don was Chairman of the Board from the company’s inception until 2013. He served as President through 1999 and then CEO through his retirement in 2008. Although “retired,” Don continued to be an active advisor and mentor, and served on the Board of Directors until April 2016.
The hallmarks of Don’s contributions to STI’s technical and scientific leadership were carefully designed studies, clearly presented analyses and findings, and thoroughness of work. The development of STI’s Charter with its emphasis on integrity, reputation, sound science, and sustainability was a source of tremendous pride to Don. The Charter continues to be a cornerstone of how STI operates today.
