Today the Environmental Business Council (EBC) announced the recipients of their Ascending Leader Award. We are thrilled to report that Charter’s own Katherine Mason has received this prestigious honor! The Award recognizes young professionals in the energy and environmental sectors demonstrating exceptional leadership and industry involvement early in their careers. Katherine was one of five recipients selected amongst a group of amazing professionals.
Katherine Mason, Project Manager at Charter, has 10 years of environmental engineering and construction management experience with a focus on environmental dredging and ecosystem restoration. Over the course of her short career, Katherine has worked for the largest Dredging Contractor in the US, moved herself swiftly through the ranks from Field Engineer to Project Manager in a male-dominated industry, dredged over 1M cubic yards of material in every condition and ecosystem, including the Columbia River, the second-most dangerous river in the world and the most dangerous river in the United States. Katherine’s philosophy is simple, “Learn from the people around you. There is someone everywhere you go that knows something you don’t regardless of their position, experience, level of education, etc. All of those differing perspectives will provide you with the skills you need to be successful.”
Congratulations Katherine and all recipients on this remarkable award!
