After 43 years as a scientist and science consultant, Dr Jim Cooke, Streamlined Environmental’s founding Director, has decided he wants to slow down a bit, and has left the company. He is not fully retiring, however, and remains available and ready to serve as an independent hearings commissioner.
Jim started Streamlined in April 2013. Since then, the business has grown, with Jim being joined by fellow Directors and co-owners Dr Ngaire Phillips, Dr Mike Stewart and Dr Malcolm Green. SEL is now a thriving business with 9 of us on the team. It is clear that Jim’s vision of a sustainable company that provides high quality scientific advice has been realised. Jim’s considerable skills in business development, in particular, will be sorely missed, as will his vision and professional integrity.
Jim is an accredited RMA Decision Maker (Chair’s certification), and has served on hearings for consent applications on water take, use and discharge issues throughout the country. He can be contacted on 021 738 587, and here is his RMA CV.
