FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
SO¯Litude Lake Management® Announces New Raleigh, NC Location, Welcomes Brad Harris, Forestry Biologist and
Stephanie Bates, Environmental Scientist
SO¯Litude Lake Management®, a leader in the lake and pond management industry, currently serving Virginia, North Carolina, Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, New Jersey and New York, celebrated the opening of its new Raleigh office in 2011. With an ever-growing presence and client base in the North Carolina market, SO¯Litude found it necessary to expand their business to include an operation center in Central North Carolina. This will enable the firm to better serve clients in the region as well as neighboring parts of Virginia.
To serve the growing client base in the North Carolina Region, SO¯Litude Lake Management® welcomes Brad Harris, Forestry Biologist, who will act as the Regional Manager for the North Carolina Region. Brad was educated at Paul Smith’s College in the Adirondacks, New York and NC State University where he studied Forestry Management. After college, Brad pursued a career in the landscape industry where he began as a laborer and worked his way to managing a multi-million dollar landscape maintenance division. He became stormwater BMP certified in 2008, which sparked his interest in water quality. Brad embraces the significance of working with property owners and managers to help protect, restore and maintain watersheds, BMP’s, ponds and lakes. His work ethic and philosophy will be an asset to the SO¯Litude staff.
SO¯Litude Lake Management® also welcomes Stephanie Bates, Environmental Scientist, who will join our Northern Virginia, WV, Maryland, and PA Team. Stephanie brings an infectious enthusiasm to the SO¯Litude staff that is a pleasant addition to any workplace. Originally from Orange County, Virginia, Stephanie is a graduate of Christopher Newport University where she also earned her Masters in Environmental Science. Her great passion for the environment makes her an instant fit among her colleagues and her presence is welcomed as Solitude’s Northern VA, Maryland, and Pennsylvania client bases continue to grow.
