In late 1987, our namesake and founder, Bob Broadbent, opened Broadbent & Associates as a sole employee in a shared suite with his brother’s insurance company located in the back of a barber shop in Boulder City, NV. Humble beginnings to be sure. The ensuing 30 years have seen steady and successful growth to where the company now has over 100 employees operating out of six offices located across the western United States. The company has grown from a small environmental firm specializing in petroleum hydrocarbon/gas station releases, to a western region environmental engineering firm offering a wide variety of professional services within the earth sciences industry. We recognized early on that diversification was critical to survival and that we must steadfastly maintain our mission to provide quality products at a fair price while maintaining a fun and challenging place to work for our employees. It appears that we have been successful at this mission, as we have a well-established, robust, and long standing client base, and we are very successful at retaining key employees. So it is with great pride that we reflect on the past 30 years and with great optimism that we look forward to the next 30 years.
