SHERIDAN — Officials at Inter-Mountain Labs announced this week that industry veteran Kevin Chartier has been elected the new president of the Sheridan-based company.
As a 21-year employee of Inter-Mountain Labs, Chartier brings 12 years of experience as vice president to his new role.
He succeeds Duane Madsen who founded the company in 1979 and served as president for 19 years.
Madsen will continue to serve as Chairman of the Board for the foreseeable future.
“I’m excited for the opportunity,” Chartier told The Sheridan Press. “The company is in a position to take advantage of changes in environmental regulations.
“I look forward to some sustainable growth in the future.”
Prior to his arrival at Inter-Mountain Labs, Chartier worked in the air quality division of the Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality.
In addition to Chartier’s promotion, Inter-Mountain Labs this week also announced that Mike Boint, a 22-year veteran of the company’s financial management division, has been promoted to vice president and chief financial officer.
Laboratory Manager Tom Patten was also elected to serve as vice president.
Inter-Mountain Labs provides environmental monitoring services and products to companies worldwide.
The business employees about 65 people in Sheridan and several others in its Gillette field office.
In reference to potential growth opportunities, Chartier said recent changes in the environmental regulation of coal-fired power plants have opened the door to growth in the uranium sector and that Inter-Mountain Labs has positioned itself to aid in that transition.
