Land use consultancy Dresdner Robin has announced three new hires for its growing team of engineering, environmental services and landscape architecture professionals.
According to the Jersey City-based firm, the new additions include Christine A. Arico as senior project manager, Benjamin J. Zoller as senior engineer and Mark Robison as landscape architect. The new senior team members will serve the company’s growing roster of public- and private-sector clients.
“We’re thrilled to add Christine, Benjamin and Mark to our team,” said Tony Ianuale, Dresdner Robin’s chief operating officer and chief financial officer. “Each of them brings a wealth of industry experience that will benefit our growing client base. Our expansion is a testament to our mission to provide clients with transformational results that also benefit the environment and the community as a whole.”
With more than 15 years of experience in environmental science and project management, Arico manages environmental consulting and remediation services for clients, according to a news release. The firm touted her knowledge of environmental reporting and New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection regulations, noting that she previously was a project manager at the New Jersey-based environmental consulting firm JM Sorge Inc.
In her previous role, her developments ranged from large-scale industrial establishments to commercial enterprises, the news release said. Arico earned her bachelor’s in environmental science from the University of Mary Washington.
“In business for nearly half a century, Dresdner Robin has a proven track record of successful developments throughout the tristate area, including Newport Mall, the Hudson Exchange and Porte Liberté,” Arico said. “It’s exciting to join such a reputable company and a rapidly growing team.”
Zoller, who received his bachelor’s in civil engineering from Texas Tech University, supports the firm’s clients in brownfield redevelopment, site planning, utility design and construction administration, the news release said. He previously worked for Parkhill, an architecture and engineering consulting firm in Texas, where he aided in public- and private-sector engineering projects ranging from public school additions to water treatment facility design.
His most notable development was a Department of Defense Education Activity project at Vicenza High School in Vicenza, Italy, where he was responsible for site layout and select design elements.
“It’s very fulfilling to contribute my expertise alongside such a knowledgeable and professional group of engineering experts,” Zoller said. “As a unit, we pride ourselves in providing positive results, with a goal to exceed expectations time and time again. It makes for an inspiring work environment, which translates to our work and client relationships.”
Robison, a fellow associate at the American Society of Landscape Architects and a 2020 Landscape Architecture Foundation Scholar, earned his master’s in landscape architecture from Rutgers University. Dresdner Robin said. In his new position, he’s charged with site design and construction.
The firm added that, in collaboration with Rutgers University students and New Jersey-based architects, Robison’s most recent work was MLK Park in Paterson, where he contributed design concepts and plans.
Prior to joining Dresdner Robin, he was a senior creative director for Momentum Worldwide advertising, with a background in brand, experiential and digital marketing.
