Montrose Environmental Group announced that it is relocating its principal executive office from Irvine, Calif., to North Little Rock. The move is expected to add 90 “high-paying” jobs to the Central Arkansas office, according to a press release.
In 2020, Montrose acquired CTEH, the environmental consulting firm based in North Little Rock. CTEH specializes in response services including environmental data collection and management, GIS, safety and incident management. To accommodate the Montrose executive team, it will expand its existing facility, located in the NorthShore Business Park just off the Interstate 430-Crystal Hill Road interchange.
“I’m pleased to welcome Montrose Environmental to Arkansas,” Gov. Asa Hutchinson said in a statement. “The 90 high-paying jobs being created by the company are a testament to the hard work and dedication that our state’s workforce possesses. I am confident that Montrose will find the talent it needs to grow and prosper for many years to come.”
Montrose CFO Allan Dicks said the company considered many states for relocation of its executive office.
“After a multi-state assessment, we are proud to call Little Rock our new home for our principal executive office,” he said. “In addition to the business-friendly climate, Arkansas’ Central Time Zone is ideal for a public company like Montrose with thousands of employees and more than 70 offices globally. Since joining the Little Rock community in 2020 with our acquisition of CTEH, we have been impressed with the quality of talent. We thank Gov.Hutchinson and state officials who have been so supportive and look forward to deepening our involvement in the Little Rock community to match our growing corporate commitment.”
CTEH was founded in 1997 and prior to its acquisition by Montrose, employed roughly 170 at locations across the United States. Montrose is a leading environmental solutions company focused on supporting commercial and government organizations. It has more than 2,000 employees in more than 70 locations around the world.
