GILBERT, ARIZONA (May 9, 2018) – Earthworks Environmental, LLC has expanded its Arizona operation with the hiring of Aaron Gordon as a compliance manager.
Prior to joining Earthworks Environmental, Gordon worked for 10 years in the primary fields of environmental due diligence and contaminated site management for both regional and multi-national environmental consulting firms.
Most recently he was the transaction services lead for the Cleveland, Ohio, office of Environmental Resources Management (ERM), a global provider of environmental, health, safety, risk, social consulting services, and sustainability related services.
“By offering land acquisition due diligence services, combined with our existing construction stormwater and dust permitting compliance services, we can provide seamless service from land acquisition through final site stabilization,” said Cherie Koester, Principal/Founder of Earthworks Environmental. “Aaron is a great asset to our team.”
Gordon has completed hundreds of environmental due diligence projects including transaction screens, lease exits assessments, desktop-based assessments of sites both domestically and abroad, and Phase I Environmental Site Assessments.

Working with diverse due diligence project teams in North America, Europe, and Asia, Gordon has worked under strict confidentiality and expedited timeframes. In addition, his experience with Phase II Investigations and contaminated site management allows him to recognize potential contaminants. This assists clients in making informed decisions on potential cleanup options and liability concerns.
