about us

Our Values

EAI has worked hard to build a strong foundation of quality and pride in our community. EAI values hard work, sound science, and our family atmosphere.

Our History

EAI was founded in 1994 by Bob Ernest and Erik Martin. Headquartered in Jensen Beach, Florida, EAI developed solid relationships with local governments, businesses, and the community. Stan DeForest took over as CEO in 2015 and helped launch tremendous growth which allowed EAI to service a much wider territory. We are now not only a leader in environmental consulting on the Treasure Coast, but statewide. We are honored to have had Stan’s guidance and ingenuity.

Bob, Stan, and Erik. Stan passed away in December 2021.

EAI launched its first Sustainability Plan in 2022
