ALBANY, N.Y. — CHA Consulting Inc. announced it has promoted Erin Crotty to senior VP, regional business-development manager for New York.

In this role, Crotty will lead efforts for growth in target markets across the state and work with CHA colleagues that focus on the firm’s clients in New York, CHA said in a news release. She’ll remain based in the firm’s Colonie office, but will be a “frequent presence” in CHA’s offices in Syracuse, Rochester, Buffalo, and New York City.

Crotty is a former commissioner of the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC).

Crotty joined CHA in 2017 as VP, environmental market leader with decades of environmental and energy experience in the public, nonprofit, and private sectors.

Her work has included leading efforts to improve air quality, conserve open space, clean up Superfund and brownfield sites, protect watersheds and habitats, promote sustainable economic growth, protect water quality, and mitigate climate change, CHA said.

Crotty was the first woman to be named DEC commissioner. She also served as the DEC’s deputy commissioner for the division of water quality and remediation. Crotty was a member of the New York State Thruway Authority Board of Directors under three governors and director of special environmental projects for Gov. George Pataki.
