12/20/2012

Stevens alumnus John Sartor, a 20-year veteran in the architecture and engineering industry and who has been instrumental in major environmental and development projects in the tri-state area, has been named President of Paulus, Sokolowski and Sartor (PS&S), a top architecture and engineering firm.

Sartor, who earned three master's degrees from Stevens in Environmental Engineering (1995), Civil Engineering (1999), and Construction Management (2003)  has many significant development projects to his name. Most notably are the redevelopment of Hoboken’s South Waterfront, now home to Wiley and Sons and the W Hotel, and the development of Atlantic City’s Borgata Hotel and Casino. In both of these large-scale mixed use brownfield re-development projects, Sartor used his experience in environmental, civil and geotechnical engineering with his construction management training to create outstanding successful properties.

“John’s passion to help clients and our team at PS&S deliver environmentally sound and extremely successful projects has been a hallmark of his career,” said Dr. Anthony J. Sartor, PS&S chairman and chief executive officer. “He has developed into a tremendous leader for our organization and we have every confidence that he will continue as he helps guide our company’s future."

Sartor was instrumental in developing PS&S’s Renewable Energy Group, which is assisting clients in the development of Solar, Wind, Alternative Fuels and Geothermal projects in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. A member of Governor Christie’s New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection Transition Team, he has also been the guiding influence behind PS&S’s Sustainable Development Group, assisting clients with green, sustainable solutions to reduce energy loads and water consumption.

"Stevens offered me a phenomenal opportunity to pursue my academic goals while fulfilling my responsibilities that furthered my career growth," said Sartor. "I attribute much of my success at PS&S to the time I spent at Stevens; the high quality education combined with the seasoned staff provides a wonderful environment for any professional looking to advance their career."
