Meet The Mechanical and Shoreline Restoration Team
Director of Mechanical Operations
Jeff Castellani serves as Director of Mechanical Operations at SOLitude. He leads SOLitude’s mechanical division with invasive weed control services, surveys, reports, proposals and GIS mapping. Jeff is a licensed applicator in many states across New England and maintains licensing and industry certificates for Construction Supervisor, OSHA, Qualified Rigger and Signal, as well as Boater Safety.
Jeff is a graduate of Southern New Hampshire University and holds a degree in Business Studies with a concentration in Finance. He spent the first 16 years of his career in banking and worked as a branch administrator, training manager, merger and acquisition project manager, and commercial loan liaison, and eventually obtained Vice President status. In 2001, Jeff left the banking industry to pursue a new challenge and spend more time with his family. He obtained a Massachusetts Construction Supervisor License, after two years of rehabilitation experience with commercial and residential properties. With a desire to excise both his intellect and body – and also work outdoors – Jeff accepted a position with his neighbor’s environmental company. His environmental and biology experience was gained both on the job and self-taught. Jeff saw an opportunity to expand the mechanical method of aquatic vegetation control and detritus management, and that evolved into his current position. He is driven by developing career paths for individuals, and providing an excellent customer experience.
Jeff is a caring father and husband. When not at work, he likes to spend time with family and friends, freshwater fish and pursue oceanfront activities. Jeff also enjoys helping out the community by coaching his local Pop Warner and Little League teams. Not quite able to give up his financial background, he also serves as the treasurer for both youth sport Boards. Jeff values helping to develop core principles and skills in young men and women. He takes pride in any endeavor presented, and looks at each challenge as an opportunity rather than a problem.
We Work Together To Offer Exceptional Service
We look forward to working with Jeff and his professional staff in the coming years
Our Club was more interested in a mechanical removal approach to our weed problem versus a broad spectrum chemical treatment. Jeff Castellani and his team developed a plan that was well suited for our environmentally sensitive location. The mechanical hydro raking service that SOLitude provided was the perfect solution and worked very well in our shallow irrigation pond… We look forward to working with Jeff and his professional staff in the coming years.

Working with the team from SOLitude Lake Management took away the pressure of dealing with an issue that I had never specialized in
Working with the team from SOLitude Lake Management took away the pressure of dealing with an issue that I had never specialized in. The knowledge of everyone involved helped keep the process moving, from engineering to local code compliance. They knew the course that needed to be taken and it was implemented in a timely manner, causing the project to come to completion well within our expectations
Immediate Communication and Actionable Timelines
SOLitude Lake Management has consistently performed to a high standard within the three communities they currently service for my clients. Whether it is routine maintenance or a major issue, I can always be assured that when I call or email we will have almost immediate communication and actionable timelines. I am particularly impressed with Brent Weber, the Environmental Scientist that is routinely assigned to my properties. He consistently keeps me informed and up-to-date on the status of new issues and general or routine upkeep. In a busy industry such as this one, having someone that stays in touch is critical and appreciated. Hat’s off to Brent and to SOLitude for a job well done!
