The Center for Toxicology & Environmental Health, CTEH®, LLC has promoted Paul Nony, Ph.D., CIH, CSP, and Chase Selby to senior vice presidents. Dr. Nony and Mr. Selby will form the senior leadership team crafting the direction and strategy for CTEH following the well-earned retirement of Cory Davis at the end of last month.
“Twenty-five years ago, CTEH was the dream of four toxicologists that came to life out of the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences’ BioVentures business incubator,” said Dr. Glenn Millner, founder and principal toxicologist. “It is astounding to look back at our humble beginnings to see a world-renowned company of nearly 200 full-time employees. We are excited for these two innovative leaders to take the helm and guide our company into the next quarter-century.”
“Paul and Chase have been instrumental in CTEH’s growth into one of the nation’s leading science-based environmental response and consulting firms,” said Josh LeMaire, COO of Montrose. “They are consummate professionals and team players with a passion and knack for innovation. Under their leadership, the company will continue to expand and excel in the environmental health and safety space.”
Dr. Paul Nony has more than twenty years of training and professional experience in chemical emergency response, human and environmental toxicology, risk assessment, industrial hygiene, and workplace health and safety. Before joining CTEH as a toxicologist in 2003, he received his Ph.D. in Interdisciplinary Toxicology from the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS). He completed a fellowship at the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS). Dr. Nony is a board-certified Industrial Hygienist (CIH) through the American Board of Industrial Hygiene, a board-certified Safety Professional (CSP) through the Board of Certified Safety Professionals, and a member of the American Industrial Hygiene Association, the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists, and the Society of Toxicology.
For nearly 15 years, Chase Selby has served in many capacities with CTEH—tackling complex projects from large-scale emergency responses to subsequent disaster recovery construction management efforts and, most recently, spearheading CTEH’s business development during COVID-19. In his previous role as vice president of innovative services, Selby was responsible for the planning, management, and oversight of all disaster recovery and construction management projects.
Based in North Little Rock, Arkansas, CTEH® has nearly 200 employees in Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas; Denver, Colorado; Houston, Texas; Indianapolis, Indiana; Jackson, Mississippi; New Orleans, Louisiana; Portland, Oregon; San Antonio, Texas; San Diego, California; Saratoga Springs, New York; and Seattle, Washington.
