Following last year’s change of ownership, fly ash processor and marketer Charah Solutions has named Matthew Sutton president and chief executive officer. He arrives with 30-plus years of senior executive experience from top environmental, engineering and consulting firms, among them CH2M, AECOM and Arcadis Environmental. He most recently led Matrix Solutions, an environmental and engineering consultancy.

“Matthew Sutton brings proven experience in executive leadership and value creation to our company and the SER Capital Partners family,” says Charah Solutions Executive Chairman Curt Morgan. “Our Board of Directors conducted an extensive search for a candidate with broad environmental industry experience and expertise across many sectors, and demonstrated executive leadership. Matthew’s background and experience fit the criteria we set out to fulfill in our hire of a new CEO. He has a proven track record of leading, improving and growing the organizations he oversees.”
