Marc Florian has retired from Environmental Consulting & Technology and continues to work as a consultant with the city of Benton Harbor on brownfield redevelopment projects.

Southwest Michigan native Marc Florian may have spent most of his life here, but he brought back with him a little bit of Texas after working there for seven years – his love for cowboy boots.

The 1979 Lakeshore High School graduate may be known for serving Lincoln Township residents as a township board member, and for his environmental work through Environmental Consulting and Technology in Benton Harbor, but his first job was as an exploration geologist for an oil company in Texas.
