Announcement about our team!

It is with a mixture of sadness and joy that we congratulate Mirek Sharp on his retirement as a Principal at NSE after a successful and meaningful career. Mirek made substantial contributions to natural heritage planning and ecology in southern Ontario; initially assisting with the development of ecologically-based management plans and planning tools for Ontario’s national and provincial parks, and latterly working with many municipalities on the development of Natural Heritage Systems and policies. We will long be thankful for all he has done and will continue to feel the benefits of his efforts for many years to come. Mirek will maintain a presence at NSE as an associate (so we can continue to pick his knowledgeable brain!).

For the team here at NSE, there are no words to describe the gratitude we feel for Mirek’s role in building the business as a founding partner, for his leadership, mentorship, friendship and… well… giving us a job!

While this transition marks the end of the first phase for NSE, our succession planning has ensured a smooth transition as we look towards the future and continued delivery of high quality services to our clients.

We are excited to announce that Kristen Harrison has joined Sal Spitale as a Principal and co-owner of NSE. Kristen Harrison joined NSE in 2018 bringing her leadership, management, and technical experience to the team. Through her proven ability to work with clients, staff and her keen eye for business development, Kristen was an excellent fit for NSE.

NSE’s succession began with Sal Spitale becoming Principal and co-owner of NSE with Mirek in 2017. Sal joined NSE in 2010 and through demonstrations of leadership and increasing levels of responsibility, was a natural fit for NSE’s succession. Kristen joining Sal as co-owner completes NSE’s transition and marks the start of NSE’s next phase.

Sal and Kristen are excited for the future of NSE. They continue to hold the values that were foundational to NSE in meeting the needs of clients through sound, science-based solutions and are looking forward to the continued evolution of the company.

Please join us in congratulating Mirek on his retirement and Kristen on her new role in the company!
