Apex welcomes Tula Economou as their new Northern California Division Manager.
With over 25 years of experience managing regions, offices, and complex programs and projects throughout California, Tula’s leadership is a natural fit for Apex. As Division Manager, she will strategically align Apex’s teams within the Greater San Francisco and Greater Sacramento areas; increase market traction; and drive future growth across the region.
Prior to joining Apex, Tula served in Vice President roles at Red Stem, LLC and AECOM. Her extensive experience includes geology, hydrogeology, human health and ecological risk assessment, remediation, environmental compliance, geographic information systems (GIS), vapor intrusion, environmental planning and permitting, emergency response, air quality, ecosystem restoration, and water resources. Tula has applied her expertise across the manufacturing/industrial, ports and waterways, oil and gas, utility, mining sectors with projects that include overseeing a multi-million dollar soil and groundwater remediation for a Fortune 500 consumer products company under Regional Water Quality Control Board (RWQCB) oversight, managing myriad large-scale power plant and former manufactured gas plant (MGP) remediations; and preparing a land management work plan for a hydroelectric system that spans six reservoirs storing over 560,000 acres of runoff, 27 dams, and 54 miles of tunnels and conduits. She holds a MS degree in geology from the Vanderbilt University.
“We’re excited to have Tula join us. Her leadership skills, coupled with her impressive experience, will be instrumental as we continue to capture market share and broaden our reach in Northern California,” stated Herb Clough, PE, Apex’s West Regional Manager.
