Salas O’Brien is pleased to announce the addition of Brian Beatty, Jeremy Beatty, and Mike Vonk to the firm’s leadership team for geothermal engineering. The team comes to Salas O’Brien from Beatty Geothermal Consulting, and they bring more than 20 years of experience in geothermal design for higher education and commercial clients.

“Geothermal engineering and related technology are critical to achieving carbon neutrality for large institutions and developments,” said Jeff Urlaub, Salas O’Brien’s geothermal leader. “When the opportunity came to bring Brian, Jeremy, and Mike to our team, we knew their experience would fit our approach and would be a tremendous asset to our clients.”

The new team members will focus on fulfilling Salas O’Brien’s geothermal growth and operating objectives and will establish a strong presence in the Canadian market, while also serving clients across North America.

“Salas O’Brien in general and Jeff Urlaub, in particular, are strong and innovative leaders in geothermal design,” said Brian Beatty. “As more and more clients continue turning to geothermal to improve their project design and efficiency (and ultimately, their bottom line), we knew that now was the right time to join this amazing team—and that ultimately, our clients would be the ones to benefit.”
