Chris Hayden

The "Phase 1" Specialist!

Chris Hayden, R.E.A., has been in the environmental field since 1991. He began with a large multinational firm as the regional representative for Western U.S. He dealt primarily with firms in the energy and real estate development fields. Seeking to broaden his "hands on" experience, he began working with a local firm in 1992. While there, he had the opportunity to work on a variety of projects, including environmental site assessments and site investigations. Seeing the need for a firm that specialized in conducting reliable, thorough and reasonably priced environmental site assessments while avoiding potential conflicts of interest, he formed Hayden Environmental in 1992. In 1993, Hayden earned the designation of Registered Environmental Assessor (R.E.A.) from the California Environmental Protection Agency.

Mr. Hayden also serves on the ASTM E50 Committee which reviews, revises and enforces the standards for environmental assessments promulgated by the ASTM Designation E. 1527-05.

Prior to 1991, Hayden had been in the real estate industry for twelve years. He last worked as an industrial real estate broker with Grubb & Ellis in Newport Beach, CA.
