Jersey City-based land-use planning consultancy expands team with project manager and staff

Planning advice Robin of Dresdner announced on Wednesday that the company has hired two new employees: project manager Cinthia Naveendra and staff planner Lucia Pachon-Ortiz. The pair will support Dresdner Robin’s growing environmental services and urban planning departments.

“Our ability to deliver transformative results continues to improve thanks to the caliber of people we hire,” said Tony Ianuale, Chief Operating Officer and Chief Financial Officer at Dresdner Robin. “We continue to attract talent who are committed to making a difference in the communities we serve. Our team has grown to over 80 members, and the steady expansion of industry experts enables us to deliver top-tier results and solutions to our clients.

Naveendra has eight years of experience in environmental science. Most recently, she held the position of Environmental Scientist III for CME Associates, where she supervised contractors and acted as a liaison between project and county/municipal managers and supported large-scale redevelopment projects, including an expansion of Overpeck County Park. Naveendra is OSHA HAZWOPER (Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response) certified and has experience in site survey, corrective action work plans and groundwater, underground storage tanks and coordination of social corrective actions.

“Cinthia and Lucia come to Dresdner Robin with extensive domain expertise and a passion for our industry sector,” said Douglas Newman, Director of Environmental Services at Dresdner Robin. “As we continue to grow our customer base, it is essential that we expand our talent pool to better serve the communities in which we work.”

Pachon-Ortiz joins the town planning department as a staff developer. While studying urban planning and design, she developed a passion for the development of green spaces in public parks and stormwater management. Pachon-Ortiz has project experience in creating innovative transit/parking solutions for densely populated cities. Her work as a student assistant for the Department of Chemistry and Bioengineering at Rutgers University provided her with insight into the environmental aspects of the urban planning process. As staff planner, Pachon-Ortiz will support a wide range of residential, commercial, mixed-use, industrial and institutional projects for Dresdner Robin.
